I longed for straight legs. Normal legs with knees that met in the middle. Instead, they curved out like two crescent moons, kissing at their tips. More
One of my all-time favorite promises for God’s people is found in Romans 8:28:
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
I wonder if anyone has ever showed you how God faithfully kept this same promise to His people throughout Scripture, in history.
