And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches, if ye seek them; and ye will seek them for the intent to do good—to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and the afflicted.—Jacob 2:19
If you feel that the beacon of your testimony is sputtering and darkness is closing in, take courage. Keep your promises to God.—Sharon Eubank
