I do not strive to convince anyone of anything. A short piece in the right sidebar shares with you why I write. I ask no one to believe what I believe for everyone has the right to choose for themselves. I do hope to encourage thoughts from an open mind and heart.
Recently, someone said that I was walking on thin ice because I believe the following scripture; “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” These word are found in Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV. The entire chapter speaks of a new hope.
