My You Have A Prosperous New Year and Receive The Full Blessings of God In 2019.

May 2013

 

The message this month is about my favorite Psalms in the Bible.  Psalms 23 ministers to me in so many ways of day-to-day life.  In my times of trouble, fear, doubt, sickness, pain, hurt and many other things that I have gone through, God’s promises in Psalm 23 has ministered and is a blessing to me.  As you take the time to read Psalms 23, I pray that it will minister to you no matter what you may be going through.  Allow God’s Word and His Holy Spirit to teach and comfort you in your time of trials and valleys. May God bless His Word and this message. May you be encouraged by the Word of God.
