    READ: PSALMS 19:1-4; 148:1-14; ISAIAH 55:12 A silver moon,a single star,shining in the morning dark.Waves are gentlyrolling in,riding on the restless wind.Sleek and smooth,sands lie fresh,washed by the ocean’s salty breath.Daybreak beamssoft and bright,rejoicing in the coming light!So may we,with hope revived—praise Him with the morning tide. Today’s poem was inspired by a moment when [...]

    READ: EXODUS 15:13; PSALM 36:7; ISAIAH 54:10 Unfailing love of Jesus,unending mercy renewed,Unfailing strength in my weakness—for your name is Faithful and True.Unceasing comfort in sorrow,untold delight in my heart,Unceasing hope for tomorrow—for your mercy I see from afar.Jesus, my Savior, I praise You,Jesus, the One I adore,Jesus, the face of the Father—my God, my [...]
