Strong On Your Behalf
"The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal toward Him" (II Chronicles 16:9).

So, here I am finally posting in my BDB blog! I guess I keep forgetting I have this thing! First off, I had to have some blood work done. It is to test for hypothyroidism and athritius.

Whoever believes will be saved. (Jn. 3:16)
Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my father in heaven (Mt. 10:32)
