The Word On The Street
|"I'm out here doing what I think I'm
called to do. I've had certain prayers answered, situations that
happened a certain way that's led me to believe that this is where the
Lord wants me, this is how he wants me, this is what he wants me to put
out, and this is what he wants me to say to people. If it quickens
their heart, if it does something in them, then I sure pray that it does.
And I pray that they gain a personal relationship with Him through that."
