Psalm 100 - Julia Dembeck - Mother's Day Collection Day 12

Though I don't know you, I feel connected to you. We are connected through grief and through our fellowship with Jesus (and probably many more areas).

I pray these words provide truth and hope in the places that feel heavy and hard.

I have asked many questions through these years, but time and time again I have been comforted by our sovereign God.
