Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. – Isaiah 43:18 KJV
Good late afternoon. I’ve been trying to read with God, although the hours brought many distractions.

prepared His table before me
in the presence of my enemies?
“Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
that ye may be blameless and harmless,

neither laboured in vain.”
– Philippians 2:14-16 AKJV
