~ God's Grace ~
" I love the Lord because He has heard my appeal for mercy. Because He has turned his ear to me, I will call out to Him as long as I live. The ropes of death were wrapped around me, and the torments of Sheol overcame me; I encountered trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of Yahweh: "Yahweh save me!"

The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is compassionate. The Lord guards the inexperienced; I was helpless, and He saved me. Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.

For You, Lord, rescued me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I believed, even when I said, "I am severely afflicted." In my alarm I said, "Everyone is a liar."

How can I repay the Lord for all the good He has done for me? I will take the cup of salvation and call on the name of Yahweh. I will fulfill my vows o the Lord in the presence of His people. the death of His faithful ones is valuable in the Lord's sight.

Lord, I am indeed Your servant; I am Your servant, the daughter of Your female servant. You have loosened my bonds. I will offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of Yahweh. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of His people, in the courts of the Lord's house--within you, Jerusalem.
Hallelujah!"

~ Psalm 116 ~ 

"Never forget - God is on both sides of the grave."

  6. Hello Sandra:
    Such strength of feeling in the Psalm that you quote today, dear Sandra, and we trust that this strength is also with you and by you as you face the week ahead.

    The days are lengthening and small signs of spring are appearing all around. We hope that these may serve to encourage and uplift you!! As always, you are in our thoughts and prayers and even more so this week as the husband of a dear friend of ours in Budapest has died just a few days ago. She too is thankful for God's Grace.
