To Him Goes The Glory – 2 Samuel 20:1-24:25

2 Samuel 20:1-24:25

In the final chapters of 2 Samuel, David’s reign as the King of Israel is nearing its end. David was a shepherd, warrior, hero, king, psalmist, and a sinner.

July 29th – Revelation 19:9

Revelation 19:9

My husband and I have been together for 32 years. To many that seems like a lifetime. Yet to me it seems like yesterday when I was an eager bride, ready to begin my new life with my new husband. Anticipation and excitement swirled inside me, as I stood in the church waiting to walk down the aisle. Yet the happiness I felt on that day can’t begin to compare to the joy that will fill my heart when, as the bride of Christ, I walk down the aisle to Jesus. After the destruction of the Antichrist and his followers, the heavens sing God’s praises, and rejoice over the upcoming “marriage of the Lamb”. (Rev. 19:7) A glorious union and cause for great celebration. For not only does it promise blessings to those who are invited to the wedding feast, it ushers in the triumphant return of our Lord. So as we wait for that magnificent wedding day, may we continue to grow in both closeness and likeness to our heavenly Groom!
