And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever."

On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Psalm 56:3-4 ESVPosted on 02/11/2013

in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?

that he might be repaid?”
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
