Just about every morning since I was sixteen I’ve always woke up at around 5AM. Allowing time between just me and God to pray, read, and sing his praises is what has sustained me even in the darkest days. I try to use one inspirational song to guide that time and today, for the second time, James Fortune’s (@mrjamesfortune) “I Believe” was the song.
Hebrews 11:16 says, “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” 2013 is here and undoubtedly there are those who will face challenges off the bat. As Christians we are called to believe that despite what storm we maybe walking through, God will make things better at all times.
