Many Christians have become discouraged and trapped by the unanswered prayers, delays and testing that come upon the narrow path.

Not only was he found to be righteous, but he became a 'friend of God.' Discover that you can be a friend of God as well. Learn more about God, faith and trust through this uplifting scriptural read that will help readers discover their purpose in God, transitioning from the old into the new.
