The Threshing, The Crushing, Gideon, and Me

I used to travel a lot for work. I spent many hours in airports and planes. Inevitably, there would be times when upon arrival to the airport the plane could not land – just yet – or had to taxi and wait for the receiving gate to become available. For those of us who have […]

And Yet…

For His People of Valor
