He Will Hold Me Fast – A Book Review

If this past year has taught me (the beginnings of) anything about a Christian’s growth towards God, it is that the process is one of the blacksmith’s forge.  Our desires for change are like sketches of what we want God to do.  But nine times out of ten, our steely hearts must feel the heat of difficulty and the sparks […]
