There are always stories behind the stories of our lives. The road of each year leads us to the interstate of our lives, with blocks, traffic, and rerouting along the way. It is in the midst of these obstacles that the Lord calls on us to reflect on the roads we’ve traveled and to see how He made a way for us, even if we have yet to reach the destination.
Barbara Ann Remembers, a Recounting of God’s Goodness by Barbara Wise is a series of true short stories, devotions, and teachings that are aimed to bring encouragement, peace, and joy to those whose journey has become bumpy. Having alw ays been passionate about the Lord Jesus and about His Word and His people, Wise’s heart has gone out to those enduring life’s seemingly endless struggles. Since early childhood, Wise has worked to reach out with the love of Jesus to those who need Him as Savior, to those who have been hurt and discouraged, and to those who are afraid.
