Did you ever have something that meant so much to you; something that was a part of your everyday life; something that you didn't think you could let go of?

Waiting On God – Spiritual Story By Larry McNeely

Waiting On God

Has God ever spoke to you "through" another person? I would venture to say that most of us have experienced this, although some of us may not have been aware of what was happening. This recently happened to me as I was in the process of responding to an e-mail sent to me by a dear sister in my church. She was concerned about how hard it is to wait on God. I usually use events from my own life to help in ministering to other people. I told her...
