Misfits… A Christmas Message (audio)

Have you ever felt like you don’t fit in, that you’re different, even broken? Believe it or not, you’re not alone. The Psalmist said, “I am forgotten as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery” (Psalm 31:12). Be encouraged! “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted” (Psalm 34:18). You are not forgotten, but in fact, loved. You are of great value and useful to God. To listen to the first message in this series, click here.
