How Do You Rely on God? (12-1-2011)

How you ever thought about the ways in which you rely on God? Sometimes it is easier to rely on God when life is difficult or full of challenges. When life is good and we are comfortable and satisfied it is easy to forget all that God does for us. It is at this time when Moses warns us to be careful not to forget God.

Spend some time this week thinking about how your family relies on God.
