Read The News, Change The World!

leejohndrowteamAs I read the news I see that we are “desperately” in need of change. As I listen to friends I see “how much I could be praying for”. Even in my own life I have “needs” or things that I would desire to be different. At some point I will carry my thinking up the stairs and into my room and spend time with Him.

That word means “to keep, to have charge of, to protect or to save one’s life.” So, in the words of Bobby McFerrin, “Don’t worry. Be happy!” Continue reading The Lord Keep You – Because He Can!
