Finding God in the Mysteries of every day
Week 19 Day 2
Isaiah 57:4 Who are you mocking? At whom do you sneer and stick out your tongue? Are you not a brood of rebels, the offspring of liars?

You can still cry out to Jesus. No matter how bleak, no matter how desperate, no mater how far you’ve fallen you can call to him and he will meet you right where you are.
Don’t miss the opportunity.
