Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6) Today is August 31, 2011. It’s a day that’s fairly odd for me emotionally. It’s in some ways the end of the road for the […]
This document was originally written as part of an assignment in a discipleship course my church offers regularly. I wrote it back in late March of 2007 when I was taking the course.
