  2. awesome exercise in the walk of faith.

    Will copy, and place in my Bible, and on my refrigerator, Mostly in my heart!
  3. Hallelujah! God's Word has His very throne behind it!

    Psa 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
  4. LLJ, this thread is a major blessing. This past Thursday, one of the ladies in my small group desperately needed prayer for emotional issues connected to divorce and childhood issues. She called me tonight (Saturday 2/14) and asked me to e-mail her some Scriptures that will help her and one of the things God led me to was this thread (which I have e-mailed to her).

    Thanks for listening to the Lord and posting this when you did.

  5. It is wonderful to get feed back on how helpful something posted is to other. If I get blessed in reading something useful like this I like to pass the blessings on to help others. God does indeed get all the glory as He leads us daily where we go for help.

    God bless.
