    I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord, in the presents thereof , than to dwell in the intense of the wickedness, in the presents of the devil . Our jobs are neither large or small, important or non important, layman than boastful, than to dwell one day in the presents of the devil and his angles.
  • Rob on Psalms 84:10
    The best single day of my life was the day I was saved. More memorable than any day with friends, events, fishing trips, or nights out was the day that I began fellowship with the LORD. Knowing that GOD cares enough about me to send me a rescue party of signs and wonders is unimaginable. I will cherish and build off that night forever. Thank you Jesus! Amen.
  • Toni on Psalms 84:10
    There is no where better to be than in the presence of the Lord, where there is joy, peace and righteousness. The people of God are well aware that fellowshipping with the Father, the Son Jesus and the Holy Ghost, is better than dwelling anywhere in the world. Those who love righteousness would rather be in the presence of the Lord and around godly people, than around the wicked, who vex their souls.
