Aug 27: My Supersized One Sentence Bible

This song chokes me up every time as I think about God as a strong tower standing tall in the storm. Unwavering. A never collapsing tower that I get to run to and hold on to when nothing makes sense. Here is the actual music video that would not allow me to display. Enjoy this song as you read today’s One Sentence Bible.
