Thankful and Blessed

“With grateful heart my thanks I bring, before the great your praise I sing;I worship in your holy place and praise you for your truth and grace;for truth and grace together shine in your most holy word divine,in your most holy word divine.” – Psalm 138B, Trinity Psalter Hymnal These words are the first verse…

Comfort And Edify

“But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should…
