  1. Thanks for this blog. I am so sorry to hear about what happened to Perry Noble, but the Lord is bringing some important truths to light through it. I wonder if he knows that God is using his failures to build the kingdom.

    … I don’t think I recognize that about my own life enough.

    Appreciate you Karl! Thanks for all you do!!!
