God’s Unbreakable Promises

Worship in Sorrow

Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped. He said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame […]

Beyond the Empty Tomb “But go, tell His disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.’ ” (Mark 16:7) The Gospel of Mark ends as abruptly as it begins.  The stone has been rolled away, and the tomb is empty.  The women walk […]
