  • MockingBird for verse 9
    God is faithful : Can not say it any better than that !!! He has called me unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ my Lord !!! Totally Awesome!!! Some people get excited because they get to talk to some star or very important person : But we are called to have fellowship with God Almighty !!! The creator of the whole earth and universe and mankind. If you do not get excited over that : Then I think your dead.
