WHAT I “ATE” WEDNESDAY: Humbled and Undeserving

Oh what a gracious God we have in Jesus. This morning I woke with the eager intention to watch YouTube videos and chill before my shift at work. God had a different plan. I was led into the Word and spent my morning there, with Him, and the Spirit spoke a few verses loudly into…

The music at the Boston Calling Festival that Johnny and I attended this past weekend was packed with talent and beauty.
