You're Gonna' Lose

March 31, 2020 | by: Nicole Riconda | 0 Comments

Today I told Satan, "You're gonna lose. In the end, you're going to LOSE." I thought that puny little devil might need reminding of that. Here is our scripture for today. It's a great one.  John 16:32-33 "A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each of you to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not a... Keep Reading
