Have you ever been surprised by God? If so, how? Rather than being surprised, we are constantly in awe of how God spreads his message through acts that we may not understand at the moment, but know that we are to learn from each and every one of them.
If you could meet God face-to-face, what would you want to ask or say? Is there any hope that we can remove all hatred and evil from this world?
