Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men. 2 Corinthians 3:2 I did not think that sharing my life through writing would be so scary.

Regardless of how rough your neighborhood is someone is reading your life page by page and deciding if they want to embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ; it’s the Gospel according to you! Don’t forget, actions speak louder than words!
Prayer: Lord, let my life be a testimony that others are drawn to by my actions. Let others see Jesus in me. My city needs You and I can lead them to You.
