PSALM 145: 4-7 Karen Armor

Generation after generation praises your works
and proclaims your mighty deeds,
they’ll speak of the splendor of your glorious majesty
and I will meditate on your wondrous acts
they’ll discourse of the power of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness
They’ll celebrate the fame of your abundant goodness
and I will joyfully sing of your justice.

  • Sleepless Nights September 29, 2020
    Lamenting to God over the state of the world is a part of faith. These are hard days we are living in. You don’t need to put on a brave face. Not with God, anyway.
  • Hateful Christians and Certain Love September 28, 2020
    God, let me be uncertain about my own righteousness, and certain of your unconditional love for both me and my enemies.
  • Thanks for Forgetting September 27, 2020
    We know that sin is not determined by age. I’ve found that sin is the immaturity of being closed to any value that does not serve self-aggrandizement.
