Dr. Michelle and Sheryl Turner, THANK YOU!! I SO appreciate this message this morning, you have NO idea! I had a situation occur yesterday that I really bombed and wanted a “Do Over”. I didn’t sleep last night and I prayed through my tears ” Let there still be hope for us, for you, God, are the God of HOPE!” I made my needs known and believed. So as I was watching this message, I have been laughing through my tears. And you know what? God heard and he answered those cries from the night.
