SIGNS AND WONDERS

“This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign.” – Luke 11:29

A white rose. A falling star. A rainbow in the horizon. Many people seek signs for different reasons. I myself have asked for signs. As a little girl, I would pray hard and ask for God to show me signs if He would answer my prayers. There were times when He did and times when He didn’t.
