He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Words of Wisdom pt 2
The following quotes bring many tears to my eyes, and have encouraged my spirit sooo much! I really feel humbled at how the LORD points me to what I need to hear at the right time...
Be encouraged brothers and sisters!!
