Hello GW (Joel)l
Welcome to CARM. Thank you for serving our country. I praise God that He brought you through that experience, the one you had later and that you are experiencing His love in your life now.
I pray the Holy Spirit will guide you in all truth and give you the peace that passes all understanding. That He will guide you to a church that keeps you in His Word when you go to Colorado.
Colossians 1, 23. if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
Hebrews 7., 24. But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.
25. Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
