God is waking us up to His truth!

Hi folks - just wanted to share a few thoughts on what God is up to in all of our lives. Robert Frost said, “I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” All of God’s revelation is relational, not informational - it’s personal. What’s that mean? He takes something that is...
