Don’t let the tests and trials of life discourage you. Yes, you may be wondering why things take so long at times? I think back to the tests I took throughout my lifetime.

Jesus himself when through many tests and trials. In today’s podcast, I’d like to talk about our part and God’s part in the journey of life. Yes, we have take action.
