Psalm 147 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Praise for Jerusalem’s Restoration and Prosperity.
147. Praise theYAH!
For it is good to sing praises to our [gracious and majestic] YAH;
Praise is becoming and appropriate.
2. YAH is building up Jerusalem;
YAH is gathering [together] the exiles of Israel.
3. YAH heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow].
4. YAH counts the number of the stars;
YAH calls them all by their names.
5. Great is our [majestic and mighty] Lord and abundant in strength;
His understanding is inexhaustible [infinite, boundless].
6. YAH lifts up the humble;
YAH casts the wicked down to the ground.
7. Sing to YAH with thanksgiving;
Sing praises to our YAH with the lyre,
8. Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who provides rain for the earth,
Who makes grass grow on the mountains.
9. YAH gives to the beast its food,
And to the young ravens that for which they cry.
Many people don't think about their family values until a crisis arises that forces them to make decisions that may go against their beliefs. While they may have never identified their values, all of sudden they are faced with the realization that something doesn't quite fit into what they believe in. This is when people realize how important family values are to the structure and operation of their family system.
Establishing a Foundation for the Family
A foundation supports a family. When crises arise, the family is able to withstand them because of the stability of the relational structure. Families with defined values are able to stand strong on their views despite other people's efforts to break through with opposing beliefs. In addition, when family members feel weak from the cold outside world, they know they can come into their family for a warm comforting connection.
Influencing Decision Making
Family values influence the decisions people make both within the family structure and outside of it. Making a decision about important topics can be difficult, and people may feel helpless if they don't know which way to proceed. Therefore, having solid family values helps people make the right decisions in life.
Guidance for Raising Children
Parenting can be a challenge and with all of the world's influences, it can be downright scary. Knowing what you believe in as a parent and what you want for your children will help you raise them to be responsible and conscientious adults.
Electrifying Christian rock and worship band Never Forsaken shares songs that reflect members’ enthusiasm for the lush melodies and harmonies of Christian praise music and heavy Christian rock and are sparked by their gratitude for the expressive gift of music that connects hearts and minds and replenishes the soul. The group’s large sound and spirit-moving lyrics further their mission to spread comforting messages about God’s awesome power, letting others know they are not alone in life’s struggle and can emerge as victors over any challenge. Lois Dallett (bass), Jim Dallett (guitar), Kisha Marie (lead vocals), Carlos Figueroa (guitar) join forces for the group’s debut eight-song EP, The Journey Here, a mixture of tracks with catchy hooks that range from symphonic rockers and epic power ballads, to rambling tunes with a country/Southern rock vibe.
Focus on The Resurrection of Jesus, the Glorious Mystery of the Rosary~ said on Wednesdays & Sundays.
As you might know, the Rosary is a form of combined prayer and meditation that has been around for over 1200 years.
One reason I started this group is because sometimes it's comforting to say the Rosary with others and I find it is comforting to say the Rosary with others. You might be able to find a Catholic church in your area with a Rosary group and you can join them. And remember You need not be Catholic to join in and you don't have to own a set of Rosary beads. All you need to do is to along with us.
Before I start, I say silently the reason for this particular recitation, who I know who needs prayers, whether it be for friends, family, fears and worries, and for people and situations around the world who are in harms way.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, just before He ascended way up high into the sky, to return back to His Heavenly Father, spoke the most comforting and reassuring words to His disciples. He said to them: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20
What He said to them then, He also says to you and me today. Our dear Lord and Savior says to us: I will never leave you. I will always be with you even to the end of age! Think deeply upon this reality: You and I are never ever alone. In all that we go through – day after day - even in the toughest of times, our dear Lord is always with us every single moment of our lives. He never ever leaves our side, not even for a split second!
But friend, I ask you: Is this your reality? Can you honestly say that you actually experience His glorious presence every single moment of your life - not just once in a while or during a great church service? In this powerful series you will discover how God's presence can be real to you on a moment by moment basis - how you can experience heaven 24/7, alleluia
Understanding how the Angels are trying to contact you. Medium Eshne shares how Archangel Michael nudged him to save some lives yesterday.
So often our loved ones are able to reach out to us from the other side and send us messages of love, hope and healing.
These messages can appear as any number of things:
Beloved pets or animals
The scent of cologne or perfume
Dragonflies and butterflies
A warm breeze, gently caressing your face
Beautiful sunsets on special days
A friend calling you when you most need love and support
Finding items you thought were lost
Comforting dreams that seem totally real (they ARE!)
Finding letters or postcards you’ve read 100 times that now take on a new meaning or significance
Noticing new things about old photographs or home movies that provide you with insights you might not have noticed before
The immutability of God is known but underappreciated. It should be among the most comforting aspects of anyone's relationship with the Most High; knowing that God's hand is always available, and also knowing where to find it, should provide everyone with a spiritual North Star for guidance.
However, the more likely scenario for many is that they will see God's faithfulness as intransigence, and consider His truth to be archaic: "It's 2015. Times have changed. We have evolved. How can you still think that way when so many have outgrown those outdated beliefs?"
Truth is, time does not operate on God. Rather, time is a reminder that only part of us is like Him. Bodies age. Arms and legs weaken. Eyes and sometimes minds grow dim. But the spirit that animates is not subject to degeneration or decay. However it is subject to change.
The constraints of the flesh run counter to the spirit. Many, if not most, will compromise their spiritual intelligence to fit the limitations of their bodies...then be absolutely amazed by the reality that they are NOT their bodies, and that their spirits can, and do, go on without a material housing.
The spirit always seeks a connection with Him Who gave it, while the body is inextricably bound to the dust from which it came. The "you" that resides in the middle of that tug of war will have to decide with whom you will pull.
Once you know the truth, which does not change, if you depart from it, then you made an eternally flawed decision
