Message from Mums' Cottage: February 2019

February 06, 2019 Sr Helen Anne

Whatever you dream your future is, it cannot be equal to His dream for you. All your dreams so wild, so extravagant, are nothing as romantic or as splendid as god's design for you. Lay your own aside, leave yourself in his divine hands, listen to His voice with humility, earnestness and courage.
