JONAH


Renewal.

Chuck Swindoll “Strike the Original Match”

            (rediscover the warmth and joy of marriage)

- Using the context of remodeling a home

- “Renewal will take longer than you planned,

- Cost, more then you figured,

- Be messier than you anticipated,

- Require greater determination than you expected.”

Hebrews 11:1KJV

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
