You Are My Sunshine

In my day-to-day, life can seem like a fog that keeps my view of heavenly Father, myself, and others in an obscure blur.  Then, when I least expect it, God’s love comes bursting through the misty numbness lighting up my senses, and illuminating my shadowy heart.  Around this time last year, the Holy Spirit directed a small band of warrior sisters and brothers to petition heaven for reconciliation of ethnic groups in our region by performing a prophetic act.  Our part of the Bible belt has been riddled with racism of one… Read More
