  1. Lovely, beautiful thoughts….wonderfully written to remind us of the power of God. We should stand in awe, always…..

  2. This is awesome… I sat before the Lord this morning and read this out loud and just praised Him for Who He is… Powerful words, and of course they are, because they are God’s Words… To speak this out loud is powerful, after doing so this morning, I felt a “hush” in my spirit and sat quietly before Him… And saw the words in my mind “BE STILL”…. I felt His Presence in my room and my spirit immediately quieted….
