o “but because the LORD loved you and kept the oath which He swore to your forefathers, the LORD brought you out by a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His loving kindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments,” Deut 7:8-9, NASB.
o “Who is like You among the gods, O LORD? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, Awesome in praises, working wonders?,” Ex 15:11, NASB (aka Mi Kamocha)
o “Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!” Ps 147:1, NIV.
Miracles are happening!!
o We continue to marvel at how good our God is – 4 people are alive today, whom science said the odds were against them – hallelujah! The Creator of all has the final word!

She said everything about me was better…that I seemed to have a glow about me and that I seemed to be at peace with my life. I shared with her that I had found a congregation since I moved and that I felt closer to God than I have felt in quite a long time. I told her how I worked every day to be the person I know the Lord wants me to be. She was so happy for me and pleased in the changes in my life… Yes, I still have physical issues but that is something we all have and learn to deal with.“
