Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Proverbs 30:5
The moment when the disciples realized that Jesus was really alive, that He overcame death and was resurrected, they were overjoyed. OVERJOYED!

Not only had they been filled with grief, but they feared for their lives,Continue reading “Overjoyed”

His son was sick, close to death, and the royal official walked all the way to Cana in Galilee to find Jesus. When he found the Lord Jesus, he begged Him to come to his house and heal his son.
