Which path?

I have to begin with sharing something that just happened. I am at a Conference for women in the field of women's ministry and the old feelings of I shouldn't be here...I'm not worthy begin to surface...and I look up in the mirror at the end of my bath and what is written in the condensate on the mirror...HAPPY! Now you tell me wasn't God reminding me that I am His and to be Happy that I am here!!!! I love the way things happen..I needed it and He provided. I really wanted a picture of it, but I wasn't sure how to achieve it without getting more in the picture than ever needs to be seen.....anyway thanks God for placing me in this room to receive your blessing...What a way to start my day!

The scripture that spoke to me was from Jeremiah 6: 16...Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, goldly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest in your souls. I love it! It is our choice whether to travel the path that contains rest for our souls....What more than rest for our souls? for our souls. Walk in the path, the old goldly path make that choice and look for your messages from God...It is a great walk!!!

Trouble? Who do you call?

Wow, I love it when the verses just jump off the page at me! It is just so obvious and I think but Lord we still don't get it...or should I say I don't get it sometimes? I will not speak for others, just little old Debbie and I don't get it sometimes, or I refuse to get it sometimes...either way it is sad! It is like the cell phone in the water it just doesn't ring true with me at times that I call on the wrong things or people....

Jeremiah 2:28 ~ But why not call on these gods you have made? When trouble comes, let them save you if they can! Ouch! Written many long years ago, but is it not so true today?

What have you placed before God in your life and made a god? What is more important than God? A job, the latest gadget, the new house, the new car, the attitude of I'm fabulous and I don't need anybody or anything, or what about the I attitude period that we are taught on tv everyday?

The world today is taught constantly take care of yourself and don't give anybody else a second do you think that attitude is working for us? Look around, turn on the news is it working? I don't think so, but instead of us doing anything about it we just keep right on going along....

Well, I think we Christians must stand up and share Jesus with others...not necessarily with a bullhorn in people's face, but in our actions, in our life, in our daily walk...people will want what we have...contagious Christians that is what we need to be sick with Jesus and pass it around to all of our friends....

Contagious and loving it,

I Knew you Before!

I've always loved the passage of Jeremiah's Calling from the Lord. Isn't it so beautiful!?

A few things about Jeremiah for background information...He was a young priest in the city of Anathoth. He was totally committed to God. One of the men that lived about the same time as him was Daniel. He was persecuted for his message and became known as the "weeping prophet" but not because of being a wimpy man.

The Lord calls Jeremiah telling him that he knew him before he was even a thought...Debbie's paraphrase...God had a plan for Jeremiah and what was Jeremiah's response? I can't..I'm too young. When God calls you have you ever given the same type of answer? I'm not good enough or I'm not smart enough or I can't? Well, God placed it on my heart this morning that it doesn't matter whether we are any of those things, because it's not us anyway!!!! It is Him!

Clearly in verse 4 it tells us that the Lord touched his mouth and put the words in that mouth...Wow! The Lord tells Jeremiah that He is watching him and that He will carry out His plans. Isn't the same true of each of us? YES! He is watching us and He does have a plan for each of us and He will provide. WE just have to believe and most of all remember that it is not us ~ only Him that we are able to speak and follow His directions. So be humble and remember today that it is God doing the work through you and is is only His work!!

Trying to walk humbly,

All is mine!

Today, the word reminded me that all things are Our Savior's not ours...

I loved the picture with nature and the throne...

Isaiah 66:1-3
Heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool.
Could you build me a temple as good as that?
Could you build me such a resting place?
My hands have made both heaven and earth;
they and everything in them are mine.
I, the Lord have spoken!

I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.
But those who choose their own ways-
will not have their offerings accepted.

Our Father is the provider of everything, the creator of everything what more needs to be said other than ...Abba Father I praise you and love you. I am so undeserving Father, forgive me Father than I am so often less than I should be...

Hungry, Homeless, needy will you help?

You see them on the street. You try to avoid eye contact, because it will ease their pain you tell that the truth? or is it easier for you to ignore the situation, if you turn your head?

In Isaiah 58:7 ~ it tell us the following ~ Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. Here is our instructions. Pretty simple and straightforward of how we are suppose to act, but do we?

I want to suggest a book that all of you that read this blog need to read...Same Kind Of Different As Me such a wonderful true story about two unlikely friends and how God worked through this friendship!

We sometimes think the person makes this choice for themselve and sometimes they do, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't care about them. They are still people that need to know that God loves them too. It is our job to be Jesus to them and sometimes we aren't (including myself) doing a very good job of being nice much less Jesus to them. We make a judgment call and we are way off track the minute we decide to judge...

Remember the word today, if it is only to smile and speak to the person on the street...just like you would to someone that looks like you! I suggest you might Call and work at a shelter and let your eyes be opened to the fact that sometimes they really don't have a choice...I made the call and my eyes were opened again to my own shortcomings rather than someone else's!

Sharing Jesus,

The longing for why..

Today, we arrived to a chapter that truly gave me answers from God. I will share my very personal struggle with you and pray that it will help someone else that is struggling with the same longing...motherhood.

Little girls are taught all of our life that we will one day be moms. Christmas, birthdays we receive our dolls that we take care of just like our own little baby. We dress them, pretend we are feeding them, bath them everything that moms do we do. We know that one day we will have our own baby to really love and take care of daily.

Well, it doesn't always happen like we think it will. I tried for many years to have this little one went through tests, blood work, pills, you name it at the time we tried it. It became very difficult and demeaning. Once again, I felt like I didn't measure up. My self-esteem was so low. I cried why Lord? Every woman comes into this world knowing that one day she will be a mom and I can't do this...why?

I struggled and struggled and one day in Bible study Isaiah 54 was given to me...I love the version in the NIV...Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,"
Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left;

Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach....

God gave me my answer for my not having children. You see I prayed for a long time just give me a reason and I will be one day I received it. God had other plans for me. I thought about these verses and realized that it is so true. God gave me many children. The youth of the church, my friends children and I knew this scripture was true and that I was okay...I didn't have to suffer the shame any longer because My Father had other plans for me, Debbie Covington and that they involved Him.

He knows the big plans, we don't. We must trust and have faith for the why's we face in our journeys. Easy, no...but doable yes! The longing for the reason why ~ I now had...the longing of the baby in my arms -- no I will never have, but I still have the peace of knowing God does have a plan for me ~ He didn't forget me and it wasn't because I wasn't worthy it was because of another plan. Thank you Lord for giving me my answer and peace...

Praising God for answered prayers,

Morning by Morning

Mornings are so special to is the time that I read the love letter that Our Father left us. I start my day with reminders about His plans for each of us and the words meant for me just seem to jump right off the page. The time is special it is our time together.

I remember before I started this that my mornings didn't start off so good...when the mornings don't start so good the rest of the day seems to follow right along. Do you know the feeling?

Well, God changed that it is like in Isaiah 50: 4- 11...It tells us that the Lord gave us his words of wisdom so that we would know comfort when we are tired..He wakens us morning by morning with and understanding of his will..He speaks to me and I listen. I don't rebel and turn away. I don't mind what others say or do because the Lord Helps ME! Yes, Lord you do. It is amazing truly when we are finally obedient to you how much easier life becomes. We aren't constantly knocking our heads up against the wall and never quite figuring life out, because you are handling all of this for us and we have faith in you...

Control, Obedience not easy to do but what a gift you finally give yourself when you finally let go and trust Our Father.....

Letting go morning after morning,

Pay attention!

I love how The Spirit tells you this one, if you listen. I was picking pictures for today and it was definitely the one shown. I typed in Pay Attention and this came up with a lot of students in the classroom and now you will know to when I share the scriptures that spoke to my heart that God wanted this one...Isaiah 44:21-22

Pay Attention, O Jacob, for you are my servant, O Israel. I, the Lord, made you and I will not forget you. I have swept away your sins like a cloud. I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist. Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free. Does it not fit this scripture beautifully?

Do we pay attention to the fact that indeed the price has been paid? Have we shared it lately? God has taken care of us and we need to pay attention just like the teachers used to tell us in school ~ we are in the most important class of journey and we must pay attention! Share this message today!

Paying attention I pray,

Trust and Soar

I know it is true without a doubt! Trust the Lord and you will soar like an eagle!

Is life always easy? No....but it is amazing! I know because I am living this journey and these verses...

Once you learn to trust the Lord the verses in Isaiah 40: 31 they become so real!
God gives you the strength to get through each busy day and it's not your own ability to get done what needs to get done it is HIS! You have a strength that you knows only comes from God to get the things done that you have on your plate ready to do!

I've never doubted the Lord, but the trust was a harder one to get. It takes start now. Take His hand and begin the relationship, so that you are able to soar with the eagles, run and not get tired, then walk and not get faint...because fellow Christians there is a lot of work to be done for our family in Christ!!!

Backward please!

I never ceased to be amazed at the things we humans request! I'm not excluding myself in the equation, we will request one more thing everytime we are blessed with something...oh by the way could you possibly do this?

Do you ever feel this way? We never are satisfied in today's world or back to the time described in Isaiah 38: 1-8...King Hezekiah is deathly ill it was about the time that Assyrian invasion of Judah happened. The Lord told him to get his house in order that he was going to die. God actually told him the end was near not questions about when it was going to happen. Not many people are given the time to set their house in order and God told Hezekiah it was coming.

Of course, Hezekiah prayed. He turned to the wall and prayed. Away from others to invade his alone time with God. A prayer between just the two of them. He reminded God that he had been a good boy and didn't he deserve more time on earth? Now remember that Jesus wasn't here yet, so he had no assurance of eternal life. He thought this was the end. Where today we all know that if we believe Jesus died for our sins and that he took them on himself on the cross ~ we may have eternal life. No assurance of this for Hezekiah.

God answered the prayer through Isaiah...Go tell him, I heard and he will live 15 more years. Prayer does matter...God does hear...Hezekiah requested and he received

The thing that always gets me though is we ask for did Hezekiah. What sign will I get that I am healed???? Of course, Isaiah asked him would you like the sundial to go forward or it wasn't all Hezekiah's asking....Do you want the shadow to move tens steps forward or back? Isn't his cool? God didn't have to give a sign or proof ~ he wanted to...God moved it backwards and gave him even more time in the action...He added even more time to Hezekiah's time! God moved the sun a little bit for Hezekiah! Wow, God is so good!

God loves the details in our life! If you don't believe it read your bible ...He is into the details of our life. Your life, my life, everybody's life matters to God. He wants in the details, so let Him in today. Don't waste one more second without God hearing your prayers and your love for Him!

Loving Him,

I know!

Isaiah 37:28 ~ I know you well-where you stay and when you come and go....

He knows us pretty well, doesn't He? Have you thought about it? God knows every place we visit, what we do at home, he is in the know...

Is this a comfort or a distress to you? Does it sadden or make your heart smile?

If you are like me, I feel both at different times...God knows us the good and the bad and He loves us in spite of ourselves....He pursues us daily and that is what I find great comfort in that He wants me to be in relationship with HIM!!!

God decided long ago our plans and it is our choice whether we say YES LORD or I don't think so...Our plans definitely have holes in them where we aren't sure what to do...God knows the plan ~ it tells us so right in this verse...So go with the one that KNOWS!

Sweet Blessings,

What is right?

When you are in an airport do you watch people? If you are waiting on a friend in the mall do you watch people? I've always been a people watcher and it is truly amazing how different God made each one of us...

One thing is not different though...God sent Jesus for each of us and he gave each of us the right to make the choice of choosing Him..He even gave us an instruction book to follow and we still make it so difficult...

Today, in Micah 6: 8 ~ No, O people, the Lord has told me what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. At face value that doesn't sound so hard, does it?

We got the instructions and He told us what He expects. 1) Do what is right ~ sometimes it is hard to turn the other cheek, isn't it? Or to apologize when you know that you hurt someone? Or to make the right choice even when deep down inside you know the right one, but it's not the one you want..2: to love mercy ~ oops mercy means to show compassion toward an offender or enemy. Now this is getting pretty personal and not always easy is it? I am able to show mercy, but to love it?
Sometimes this is a hard one. 3) Walk humbly with God - to not be arrogant or proud to show respect...Sometimes we get pretty full of ourselves which in turn makes it very difficult to walk with God. After all, God doesn't show these qualities and yet we want to??

Wouldn't it be a wonderful day sitting in the airport and everywhere we looked including ourselves we saw people that showed all of these qualities? We remembered that the person behind the counter isn't the one that made the plane late..or the person that stepped on my toes maybe she is in a situation at home that is so difficult that she could use a smile...and if we remembered that everything good that we do, really isn't our is the one that made us that allows us to show all of these qualities and we will look like HIM when we are able to achieve these qualities...

Hope eternal

In whom do you place your hope?

The photo is of a garden tomb in the Holy Land during the spring. Isn't it beautiful? It spoke to me this morning when I was picking the photo to go with the text...It was like it spoke this is where you received your hope...this tomb because I didn't stay in this tomb or one like it...

The scripture that just grasp my heart today was from Isaiah 35:1-4 ~
Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days. The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.
Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon.
There the Lord will display his glory, the splendor of our God.
With this news, strenghten those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees.
Say to those with fearful hearts, "Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you."

He did indeed!!!

Only in returning to me!

I loved this picture! Even a blue jay knew to pray to return to God and rest in him!

Today's reading so spoke to my heart! It is from Isaiah 30 ~ v. 15 Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. Isn't it true? We are so hard headed, we think I can do this...we are like the little engine that could...

we just keep trucking whether we are going the right way or not....

Until finally, just like verse 18...So the Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help.....Are you waiting?

Do you need His love and compassion? He is gracious if you will just ask....
He will respond to your cries..Your own ears will hear the voice right behind you...
Rest in him and see what He wants to share with you!

Resting in Him,

Who will wipe your tears?

Our world is weeping! It is a hard, difficult world and we face challenges after challenges and the only way that we get through it is with Jesus. What about those that don't know Jesus?

It makes me sad to think the despair they face with each day. The sadness of facing things by themselves must be horrible. The verses in Isaiah 25: 8-9 speak so much to Jesus...He will swallow up death forever! The Sovereign Lord will wipe away all tears. The Lord will wipe our tears away...I love the image of the Lord wiping my tears...Jesus is the answer.

How do we know? He is trustworthy, steadfast and brings us salvation! Jesus died for you and for me and with this we will face a world that we will one day shed no more tears. We will live forever with Jesus and share in the hallelujah's together.
Share Jesus today and remember the one that will wipe away your tears....

Celebrating the one that wipes my tears,

I, more of I and even more I

The world we reside in really feeds all of us with thoughts of what is important to me, what matters to me, totally focus on yourself and let other things fall in to place. Isn't it sad...we reside in a world that is all about oneself. We begin to think we are the only thing that matters and let the chips fall where they may and it is a sad way to get by...

Isaiah 22: 15-25 A Message for Shebna really spoke to all of us living right now...How important we may think we are and how it gets us to think selfishly about our own desires and totally forget everything else including God. Shebna was a pretty important guy in his day..he was the palace administrator to the King. Shebna would have had the master key to the palace. He begin to think just how important and special he was so he wanted a really fancy resting place. He began to build this himself on a rock up high...Now this is not exactly something I would want to do anyway...The Lord doesn't like what He sees and tells Shebna that He is going to drive him out of office and replace him with a man by the name of Eliakim who definitely had a heart for the Lord.

A few things we all need to know the chief steward would wear the key (the master key) fastened to the shoulder of his tunic. The key was a picture for authority and the Lord was giving this key to Eliakim to open and shut the door as the Lord's representative, nobody could oppose this move on the Lord's part. Some commentaries say this is also a prophecy about the Messiah, because Jesus spoke of this himself..Look at Matthew 16:19. I think one of the most revealing passages is Revelation 3:7 ~ These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens." We all know this tells us that Jesus has the authority to open and shut doors in our lives just as He pleases and we need to accept all doors ~ open or shut! One door contains true life everlasting. Follow Him the one that holds the key!

Bandaged by the Great I Am!

Psalm 147: 3-5
He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.
He counts the stars and calls them by name.
How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!
His understanding is beyond comprehension!

I love these verses. I know that it comforts me that Our God is so big and so mighty that He is simply beyond my understanding. I find that a great comfort and it nourishes my very soul. It allows me to function everyday because I find peace in knowing that God is so big that I with my little brain will never understand all and that I don't have to...I don't understand everything and I am able to accept that I won't because God tells me this himself in these verses.

I trust and have faith in God that He does heal our broken hearts and bandage our wounds and not always the way we expect, but He does. I love the fact that God names the stars and that they have a name. He calls them by their name and this encourages me on difficult days because I know that God is calling my name ~ Debbie come along I'm carrying you and you will make it! I find great comfort knowing that
God is great and that His power is absolute! I believe with all my heart that He is way beyond my small brain and for this I truly am thankful! The only way to get through this tough world is knowing that God is just that big, mighty, powerful, great, absolute and simply way beyond all of us! Thank you God for loving me and knowing my name!

Loving and Trusting God,

Who do you count on?

Who or what do you count on? Do you count on your spouse to keep you going? do you count on your parents? Do you count on your siblings to lean on? What about your friends? It's interesting when you think about it all the people that we count on in life. The plumbers, the electricians, the teachers, the docs and dentists, the nurses, the man or woman that cooks your next meal, the bus driver, the beautician, the list just goes on and on....

Psalm 130 verse 5 says it so beautifully...I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.

I see the image of little children counting and just like the picture pointing to the heavens and saying yes whether I count 1 or 100 are the only one I am able to truly count on! The summer is in full force and Bible schools are going everywhere and let's all pray that the kids will realize that truly God is the one we all count on. The adults need to teach that God is who we depend on when we count! Let's go 1, 2, 3, .....

What is your protective shade?

What number do you use 10, 15, 25, 50 times longer in the sun, if you use this product? I always want a little bit of sun, but then not too then I wonder which number would be best for my skin tone?

Always, wondering which would protect me the best. Well, in Psalm 121 verse 5 it is said the best ~ The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. They sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night.

What a beautiful image! Picture the shadow of the Lord being your protective attire for the day or night...always on guard for you and for me! I love the image and it isn't just an image...Ask Him to guard you watch over you...

The Lord goes with us wherever we go! Thank you and all praise to Our Savior!

Praising God,

Rejoice! Celebrate!

I've always been and will continue to be very honest about my own flaws. I have so many...I believe to be authentic in our faith, we must admit our shortcomings to become real to people...So I share my less than qualities with everybody...

Today, I want to share about the verse that was so beautiful to me today...It is from Psalm 119 verse 162 ~ I rejoice in your word like one who discovers a great treasure. I love to study the word. I get the Bible, I research the verse, I listen for what God is sharing with me and I talk to my friends about what God showed me and ask what did God show you...Back a few years ago, more than a few probably ten or more I would have thought the bible is a good book for Sunday mornings or the difficult times...or the times that you are attending a conference and you need to look the part of knowledgeable on the Word...I'm ashamed to admit this, but it is the truth.

I didn't pick it up just to read for pleasure. I needed it for something. It served a purpose for something I was doing at the time. I pray for young women to realize at a earlier age what a treasure God has given each of us. It is His handwritten letter to each of us. It tells us of his love for us, it tells us to be strong and step out in courage that He is with us, it tells us He delights in us, it tells us that He knows the number of hairs on our head..this amazes me I lose a bunch each day and He still knows the numbers of hair I have on my head and what I treasure about these facts are that He delights in the details of Debbie Covington's journey...of each of your journeys! He loves us..He treasures us and He wants to be a part of our journey. One way is through His word and the shame I feel at the fact that I was so late in realizing this treasure.

I know I would roll my eyes at older women that shared these facts with me, because I knew so much and still do at times....Another thing the Word has taught me though that even through all of my knowledge(so called) God loves me. He forgives me, if I have sense enough to admit that I am nothing without Him. I know nothing without Him. Only because He loved me and you so much that He sent Christ to die for us are we able to talk about God. His love for us is our treasure and one way to learn all about His love is through His love letter to us!

Treasuring His Word,

Psalm 111 ~ How amazing are the deeds of the LORD! All who delight in him should ponder them...

Are you a thinker? Do you like to get off by yourself and mull things over in your head? Do you sometimes dwell on things that do absolutely no good? These things then become bigger and bigger all because we allow our mind to ponder things that we have no control over??

Well, when I read this verse it hit me...ponder the things that God does and the wonder and the awe of it rather than worry about things that I have no control over anyway. It does two things...It places our focus on The Lord who is control of the things we are fretting over anyway and it changes our mood to one of delight rather than worry. Delight means to take pleasure and ponder means to consider deeply.

If we consider deeply all the things that God has done and does we can only find pleasure and joy...after all His work is beyond words and it reminds us of His power and might to take care of the things that we worry or fret about....So today take a moment and ponder about all the amazing deeds of the Lord! Delight in him and ponder Our amazing Father! Winston Churchill once said the following "The empires of the future are the empires of the mind" well let's ponder Our Amazing Savior!

Lord help!

How often have you cried out Lord help? Psalm 107 spoke so beautifully to our cries and all that have gone before us...We all know to call on the Lord to help us, don't we? I'm always reminded of the scene from Bruce Almighty with sticky notes all around the room for a visual of our cries for help...the big and the small requests, the ones we should't ask for, but we do...thankfully those end up in the unanswered prayer column, but we do cry ~ Lord HELP

I found images that spoke to this Psalm and want you to lift your prayers to the Lord today...Remember He does help...verse 43 says it beautifully...Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will see in our history the faithful love of the Lord. It is true ~ even the unanswered prayers .....

Again and again!

Again and again he rescued them! Psalm 106, verse 43....

Do I really need to say more?

Think over your many times have you been rescued?

How many times did you rebel once again? How many times did you make the choice you knew deep, down inside wasn't the right one, but you did it anyway? What happens once again? Again and again he rescued them...

We make a choice and then we cry out just like in verse 47 ~ Save us, O Lord Our God!

In verse 44, it tells us that we cry out and the response even though we rebeled, even so, He pitied them in their distress and listened to their cries..He remembers us!

Do we remember Him? Do we praise him like verse 48 says ~ Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting...or do we take God for granted just like we do the ones around us?...

Rescued again,

What do you see?

When you first meet a person, what is the first thing you notice? Maybe their eyes, their smile, their clothes, their ???? I always notice their smile. I've heard a lot of people answer their teeth...Its funny what we notice, isn't it?

Psalm 104 spoke to me about what we notice about God...Psalm 104 tells us that He is robed in honor and majesty. A robe of light. A starry curtain is stretched out across heaven...the winds bring His message, the earth is covered in clothes of waters! God wears clothes of a different kind, doesn't he?

I was reading a commentary about this Psalm and I loved the imagery...we wear clothes everyday, so we don't see the person really...thank goodness...seriously we see the clothes..the same is true of God. God wears the role or creator just like we wear clothes. We don't truly see people and the same is true we don't truly see God in physical form we see His creations and it is the great I AM!

God is everywhere. The ravines, the mountains, the animals, the streams, the trees, the fruit, the birds,the grass...the list goes on and on. God stayed with creation and takes care of everything along the way. He provides for all beings.

Verses 19-23 talk about time with God and how He set the seasons, the sun setting and the dawn of the morning..God planned everything...I never and pray that I never will be unmoved by all that God does. The creation of our own human bodies is absolutely amazing and how it all works and God knit it together and just like it tells us in verse 31 ~ May the glory of the LORD continue forever! The Lord takes pleasure in all he has made! The earth trembles at his glance; the mountains smoke at his touch. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath!

Let all that I am praise the Lord.
