T2W Book Club

T2W Book Club - Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

"The truth is, God is good, whether I feel like He is good or not. The truth is God loves me, whether I feel loved or not. The truth is, through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ on my behalf, I am forgiven, whether I feel forgiven or not. The truth is, God will never leave me or forsake me; He is with me all the time, even when I feel alone and forsaken." (195)
