Favorite Scripture: “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever, Amen.” Eph 3:20-21
"This is a favorite scripture because it reminds us constantly that we have available to us a power that is greater than anything we could ask or think about. God is present with us and through His Spirit empowers us to be used by Him to His glory."
