For the first time in days I was able to focus on the Word again, it felt wonderful to spend time with my Father. Well, I have spent time with him throughout this illness but not in the same way - I was so weak and weary I could not read much, and even staying … Continue reading I Will Extol The Lord
At church tonight the text preached on was Psalms 2 and I have to say it really struck a cord with me. As we worked through it line by line I kept thinking of all that is going on today, and how this Psalm describes equally well those of Jesus time who crucified the one … Continue reading The Power of the King
My Psalm reading today contained the following beautiful, comforting verse. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalms 34:8 The Lord is good, so very good!

Saints

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) Life is hard sometimes, full of challenges, worries, fears, doubts. For instance the last few months we've had vehicle issues that have drained what little money reserves we had, add … Continue reading God is good all the time and all the time God is good
For several weeks our Sunday school teacher has opened with this verse as a gentle reminder that we need to thank God for our blessings not grumble about our trials. I always whisper it along with him, smiling over every word. It's long been a favorite go to passage of mine. Every since I opened … Continue reading Rejoice!
