Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deut. 6:4-9
Prescription For A Trying Time

Have you had trying times? Are they right now? If not, they will be ahead, in this life. In the weather, in the trials, cling to the truth in these words and may they give you hope.
