Day 5: Expecting The New

Bible Reading:  Romans 4:16-25, Habakkuk 2:1-3 There are times I get home quite late but I can be certain I will meet my young kids awake, running out of the door to welcome me home.  It largely depends on what I told them before I left. Sometimes in a situation of trying to manage the emotions of my going out, I might have taken the easy rout and told them something like ‘guess what, daddy is going to get you…

Day 4: Sustaining The New
