Heart Searching--Part 2
In a previous hub entitled Heart Searching, I began to list several questions to allow us to examine our hearts before God concerning personal revival. The list was given to me by an evangelist that had passed through our area. I found it very helpful in my own life, and some of you have requested the entire list of 125 questions.
