  • Mild Bill,saved by grace
    Redemption is of God alone.Those who trust in him,place their soul in his hands,because he has shown them mercy and revealed his covenant to them,by his grace.Affliction,pain and enemies in this world,distract us from what we know of our God,but he is faithful to remember us.A blessing/help to us is to never lose sight of Him.He said,"Come unto me",and we will look to him for help today,now.

    He is a faithful God. Call on him in time of need and He will surely come to your aid. He niether sleeps or slumbers. Giving my life to Jesus is the best thing that ever happened to me. May yours be better as you take that step. Psalm 23 always lifts up my spirit when i am overwhelmed.
