I wanted to share one of my favorite songs, which has been very powerful in my life.  Ulysses by Josh Garrels.  For the times when we feel lost, overwhelmed, or just unsure of our next move, we always know the sun will rise in the morning and the true love of God will always carry…

Be confident in who who were made to be and don’t hide the light you’ve been given!  “You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket.  Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand,…
