Henry Ward Beecher said, “Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” Which handle are you choosing to grab hold of? Are you overwhelmed with pressure? Are you worried about tomorrow and next week? Do you twitch every time the phone rings? Feel like not getting out of bed? Ever have a sensation like your world is closing in on you with a cloud of darkness? Or are you grounded with a tenacity, a grit in your teeth that says, “Things will change for the better!” God has not left me! My faith is in Him!” Pastor Fernando will build your faith, to help you to choose to trust God more and live the life you were destined to live.
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” 1 John 5:14-15
