Hope + Help for Loss and Grief with Paul Tautges

From the series:
If God did not hold back his only Son, but gave him up as a sacrifice, you are right to conclude that he will not withhold himself or his love from you. There is no need you have which he will not work overtime to meet. There is no hurt you cannot take to him. – Paul Tautges
