Today, Wendy and I are taking a break from our interview series, Breaking Light. Wendy has just returned from her holiday and I am at a camping ground with my family until the weekend. We would love to encourage you to go back and have a look at each one of the posts thus far. Each one carries a different facet of God’s faithfulness, love and compassion through life’s valleys and we pray that you will be encouraged in your own walk, whether on the mountain top or valley.
Below you can find a link to each post and a very short key-word summary of the deep valleys encountered. If you choose to read the actual posts though, you will find so much more and most importantly the powerful Presence of God in the midst of the most excruciating of life’s circumstances. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Please note we will no longer be doing posts twice a week, but sporadically on a Friday.
