“Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly.” – Proverbs 3:13-18.

The Lord Is My Rock, My Fortress


PROLOGUE TO PSALMS:
There is one thing that a Child of God can always rely upon with their Heavenly Father; HOPE and ASSURANCE! His plans for the world may appear to be harsh, yet He is always thinking of ONLY the best for those Whom He calls by name! Remember that when you look around at the situations in the world then realize and remember, our Home is NOT of this world!
