We Say, God Says

It is interesting how often we listen to our own lies or the lies of others without even realizing it. I have found myself many times frustrated, hurt or angry because I was unconsciously listening to lies rather than hearing God’s truth.

So for those of you who might do the same thing, here are some simple reminders of God’s truth:
