Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Please Welcome:
Jossara Makenna
[Josie Mae] for short
8 lbs. 7 oz. 21 "long
her name Jossara means :
God will increase / Shield of Joseph

My son and his new daughter!

Her 5 psalms for LIFE are:
Psalm 24 - 54 - 84 - 114 and
Psalm 144
[Selected section]
Of David
1 Praise be to the LORD my Rock,
who trains my hands for war,
my fingers for battle.
2 He is my loving God and my fortress,
my stronghold and my deliverer,
my shield, in whom I take refuge,
who subdues peoples under me...
12 Then our sons in their youth
will be like well-nurtured plants,
and our daughters will be like
pillars carved to adorn a palace.
13 Our barns will be filled
with every kind of provision.
Our sheep will increase by thousands,
by tens of thousands in our fields;
14 our oxen will draw heavy loads.
There will be no breaching of walls,
no going into captivity,
no cry of distress in our streets.
15 Blessed are the people of whom this is true;
blessed are the people whose God is the LORD.
