Discussion for Psalms 27

  • Kizzy
    I am so thankful for this chapter in Psalm. I memorized it last year and have been able to use it to have courage as God has led my husband to become the Pastor of a small struggling church. It is also helping me through an illness my daughter has as well as a tumor that I have that is spiking my blood pressure up in sleep. Many things in this life are uncertain but the strength of God will endure
