View from a High Mountain

I approached the Lord this morning with a touch of anxiety.  I said, basically, “Lord, I know I try not to ask for much other than for you to teach me.  But today, I need you.  I need comfort.  Will you comfort me?  And, will you teach me what it means to be my “ascended […]
