Endurance…(2 Timothy 1:12), “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” No one knows the future but God…I’m not worried about what might […]
