But even now, I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.
Question of the Day: Will you welcome Jesus as a guest in your home, heart, and life? Will you serve him in all you do? Will you open and pour out your heart to him in times of distress? Will you sit at his feet in trust with love? Will you choose the better part?
