God Is . . . .

I found encouragement in these reminders posted on my friend, Bill’s blog: Unshakable Hope.  Bill was diagnosed with ALS in 1996 and continues to be an encouragement to all who cross his path.  (Used by permission.)

God is . . . .

God is . . . .

Over the years I have heard some strange definitions of who God is. I believe these contradictory definitions cause doubt and confusion.
