March 2017 – Jordan

My word for 2017 is – Unshackled. Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. This year, the Lord and I are working…
