But Is He Kind?

By Joanna Kimbrel 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

“The Lord is righteous in all His ways.” These words from Psalm 145:17 have often been a comfort to me. A reassuring reminder in the midst of brokenness. I look around and see circumstances that are out of my control, injustice that appears unrighted, and events whose purposes I cannot understand.…

Choosing Joy in our Place

We are fickle creatures, aren’t we? We’re tossed about by our emotions; it isn’t difficult for the Devil or our flesh to woo us towards discontentment. Our house may not be ideal, or we find our limitations frustrating.…

Easter was a couple of weeks ago.

The severity of the Coronavirus crisis continues to increase, and more and more people have found themselves confined to their homes.
