How can I glorify God? Is that even possible? It is difficult in itself to wrap my simple mind around the greatness of God, The Father, The Son and last but not at all least The Holy Spirit.
When I journey through the Word of God aka The Bible I overwhelmed with excitement. Within the span of a few pages you can go from being captivated by the rich and authentic history to being moved to tears by the love of God.
