HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy, though despised and poor.
Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.
Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.
As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
All their foes they boldly dare.
~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~
14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
15 Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
THANK YOU, JESUS!

This is wedding week and of course it is full of busy-ness that doesn’t have much to do with the wedding until Friday! LOL!
But I KNOW and I TRUST that when it gets to busy the Good Lord always takes care of it for me! Whether He keeps me calm or eliminates a few things for me as the week goes on HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ME for HIS HONOR AND GLORY!
HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT, TOO! THANK YOU, JESUS! ALWAYS AND AGAIN!

1 Peter 3:12-17
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
In the world we will have tribulation-SO WHAT!?
We have a Saviour-the Only Begotten Son of God- JESUS-Who has given us victory over the sting of death! Right? RIGHT!! ETERNAL LIFE! RIGHT? RIGHT!
The Lord says so and I believe Him!
MARCH ON CHRISTIAN SOLDIER! It is not about those that persecute us! It is not about us! It is about the Lord God Almighty’s TRUTH for our NOW and our ETERNITY!

There IS a spirit behind the Mary of the following **article but NOT the Mary God chose to carry Jesus and be His earthly mother.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
*2 Corinthians 14*
And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
**This is honestly disgusting and sad.**
