Prayer Chaplains’ Corner By Reverend Denise Ostendorf For the past few weeks, I have been having a reoccurring dream that I am blind and I get very, very frustrated because I can’t see. It truly was not too hard to figure out that these dreams were just reflecting the way I felt. Right now, I seem to be in a place where one door has shut and I am still waiting for the other door to open. I know in my heart that all I need to do is to trust God.

Facts are statements about the economy or about our financial situation. Facts are things we hear on the news. I am always given a choice to put my faith in the facts or to put my faith in the truth of my being. We are told in the Bible to seek the truth and truth shall set you free so let us claim our freedom.
