Be Loved Tonight, we had an event at my church, and I went to help out, to serve. But, I didn't really expect to get anything, I didn't really expect God to meet me there, but He did. One of the guests spoke out: "Someone in here is feeling unloveable, and God thinks that's laughable." … Continue reading Be Loved
