I would like to share a personal testimony in hopes that this will help someone else. My father was diagnosed with cancer on Dec 12, 2019. He refused treatment and I had to accept that. My father lived in Chicago, and I lived in Las Vegas. However, I visited him in Jan, Feb, and I had plans of visiting him again in March and in April for his birthday. I wanted to spend as much time with my father as I possibly could. Well, Coronavirus hit and the world was shut down. I could
Not all storms are in the forecast. Sometimes things don't work out the way we expect them to. But during those times we need to continue trusting God, and believe that He will work things out for our good. So, don't get distracted by the storms of life. Stay focused on God. The more we use our faith, the stronger our faith will become.
