"I have seen God's hand work in my life a thousand times. In the midst of my fear and trembling comes a deep security. God has always been faithful to provide and bring about His purpose for my life. I have learned that God is all that I am not". Paul said it best. "When I am weak, then I am strong" Corinthians 12:10
