Well I’m glad God helped you overcome fear to post your poem. It’s very encouraging. 🙂
Thank you for sharing your heart. What a privilege to know the Redeemer of our soul Who will never leave us or forsake us.
The video teaching you included actually dovetails nicely with the books “Daring to Hope” and “Same Kind of Different as Me.”I look forward to the movie of the latter this Friday.
You’re welcome, Thomas. Thanks for your encouragement and support on my writing journey, and for your inspiring contributions on #MounceChat & #HealthyFaith on Twitter. Looking forward to your next blog post too. God bless.
