This is a devotional I shared a year ago, but I thought it was a good reminder that needed repeating. Psalm 77 I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to me! When I was in deep trouble, I searched for the Lord. All night long I prayed, with handsContinue reading “Give me a word, Lord: GOD IS GREAT. GOD IS GOOD. LET US THANK HIM!”
