Through the Eyes of This Calvinist

Jeremiah  29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

  1. One more thing on your reposting my ALS update, I had an overwhelming response of well wishers, and also acquired many more followers, which will open many more prayer channels. Just wanted to thank you again. God has open many new doors. Greg

      God Bless!

  2. Think the Holy Spirit is teaching His children about suffering. My post today is on this line as well. Thanks for sharing this link, what a ministry Greg has of encouraging others as he walks towards eternal life.

      God Bless!
