joy in the everyday ~ psalm 30:5

Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

joy in the everyday ~ psalm 16:11

heart abandoned

We finished up our ladies’ Bible study on Beth Moore’s David: Seeking a Heart Like His. If you’ve never done a Beth Moore study, I would highly recommend it.  She has a wonderful, engaging way of digging into God’s Word.  Her video segments are energetic, heart-felt and relatable.  You could just watch the videos and you…… Continue reading heart abandoned
