Sarah and Isaac lying together face-to-face, her aging lips kissing his plump ones, her sinewy fingers caressing his, fresh

Prayer: When You Need a Breakthrough

The Story of Heaven

All through the story of the Bible two parallel and beautiful dramas unfold: There is the Upper Story. God is real, He is present, and He is working on our behalf. Heaven is breaking into the world more than we recognize, and the story of God’s seeking love, perpetual grace, and longing for relationship with
