“Where’s the remote?” We’ve all heard that. We’ve all lost that. You search everywhere and everything. You call your family search party and hunt! But is there something else you can do?

God cares about ALL of our needs. The big ones. The small ones. The things you would think He’d remotely care about. Like, a remote.
Pray first. Act second. Go make a . Always run by faith.
