Psalm 44:8

When someone asks me about my faith, my heart practically bursts at the seams with joy. I can’t wait to tell them of all the ways God works in my life. Whether it be His love, grace, protection, discipline, or healing, God’s hand is everywhere I look. My heart can’t help but brag of the wonderful things the Lord has and continues to do each day for me. And although my spiritual walk is is somedays one step forward two steps back, I will forever praise God for His faithfulness and mercy!
