Kelly, wonderful testimony shared by Abby. She is sure to bless many today!
I completely agree Joanne. We are all blessed by this.
This was a beautiful post that perfectly states what all of us go through when we step out in obedience. The Lord uses us for His Kingdom, even our freak out moments! I am speaking at an event in Feb and am having some moments of doubt myself right now. I really needed to hear this today. Thanks for allowing Abby to share her story Kelly. I pray it will bless many.
I am delighted that it spoke to you. Praise God for that. I know that the Lord will give you just what you need in Feb. I am praying over this for you right now Nicki! Much love to you!
