Blessings of Knowing The Sun of Righteousness

The LORD of Heaven’s Armies says,

“The day of judgment is coming,

burning like a furnace.

On that day the arrogant and the wicked

will be burned up like straw.

They will be consumed—roots, branches, and all.

“But for you who fear my name,

the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings.

And you will go free,

leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.”

Malachi 4:1-2

Blessings of the One Who Always Remembers

Praise the LORD!

I will thank the LORD with all my heart

as I meet with his godly people.

How amazing are the deeds of the LORD!

All who delight in him should ponder them. 

Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty.

His righteousness never fails.

He causes us to remember his wonderful works.

How gracious and merciful is our LORD!

He gives food to those who fear him;

he always remembers his covenant.

Psalm 111:1-5

(Bolivar Peninsula)

Blessings of the One Who Gives A New Song

I waited patiently for the LORD to help me,

and he turned to me and heard my cry.

He lifted me out of the pit of despair,

out of the mud and the mire.

He set my feet on solid ground

and steadied me as I walked along.

He has given me a new song to sing,

a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see what he has done and be amazed.

They will put their trust in the LORD.

Psalm 40:1-3
