  • Trusting God even If Rev. Andrea Paterson
    BODY { font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px; }   Due to an injury that occurred in 1992, I suffer from chronic pain in my upper back, shoulders, and neck. During the most excruciating and disheartening moments, it’s not always easy to trust or praise the Lord. But when my situation feels unbearable, God’s constant presence comforts me.
