It is good to be reminded of truths that we know but often take for granted their importance. For example, we know that God is above and beyond us. His power is without limitation and the intricate and intimate ways that He can move in and out of the lives of people is beyond measure. But sometimes we forget that in our every day, 9-5 lives. So Kurt decided to end the week with a discussion on the mysterious and wonder inspiring ways that God has worked in the lives of his people. Join us for this fascinating and faith building edition of Kurt Goff Live.
