This message ended with a story about little Matthew jumping into the deep end of the pool. Pastor Michael then stated, “Matthew had no doubt that Joe loved him, and that Joe would be there for him time and time again.

So too, we are to be those who live our lives with complete trust in our God… In every area of our lives.” What would need to change in your life for you to completely place your total trust in God?
