More than conquerors through him who loved us

“When the restrainer is taken away, we will surely cry out to God, “How Long O Lord?”

Phew! You mean, He hasn’t already been taken? God help us all if we’re still living in the time of restraint. I’d hate to see life without it, if it’s already this bad…

Remain steadfast and watchful, folks.

The blog site is up and running. Please feel free to visit if you want to know the Lord. I treasure His Scriptures and pray you do, also. I've been a Christian since October 2009. The Lord saved me that month and has led me through many things in life. The one thing I adore Him for is bringing me the Light of Salvation and for forgiving me my wickedness.
