Our Journey

Each of us has a different journey with our Creator because all of us are in a different place in our walk with Him. We sometimes feel like God doesn’t love us or have anything to do with us because of our sins. This is where we are revamped. God restores us and repairs us because of His grace and love for us. Let go of how we see ourselves and start believing who we are through God’s eyes.

He takes us in the midst of our sins and shame by placing His stamp on us. We are stamped by the Holy Spirit living within us. We are His and He knows we belong to Him. Are you at this place in your own journey?
