Inspiring stories about your investments making a difference in LCMS congregations across Texas.
Walking in His Word
Deut. 28:9: “The Lord will establish you as a people holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways.”

Learning how to walk a new way is always hard. We strive in our lives to make headway on the paths life’s journey takes us. As Christians we leave church on Sunday, knowing we are forgiven and trained in new ways of how to walk in this fallen society.

Every day is a new day that God has set before us, establishes for us to follow His lead.
