    Dear Lowanda; Jesus who brought you to the day of repentance and conversion will never leave you nor forsake you; and all that He has had in His heart for you from the foundation of the world, He will not rest until it is done completely! We have so much to grow and to learn and to be transformed and made like our Master Jesus: hunger for Him in His Word every day in much prayer, and only believe!

    Yes the lord is always among us. I was just saying today before I went to psalms 26 that when God Bless you, you must put behind people that is not of God I was blessed and I'm not the same person I was before I was saved I'm trying to be a good person and continue to love God. I don't want to do the things I use to do. So I would love to thank God for saving me and today it was confirmed .
