I never do anything like this so welcome to a first on the Inspired by the Comforter site. After speaking with a friend earlier, I couldn't help but start singing a couple of choruses from some old songs I grew up on. I was lied to for years. The world around me, and yes, even … Continue reading The Blood will Never Lose its Power
I've been through a lot in my lifetime. I used to feel a little sorry for myself if I'm being honest.
