Happy Birthday Stephanie

Psalm 20

1 May the LORD answer you in the day of
trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice.  Selah

4 May He grant you according to your heartdesire,
And fulfill all your purpose.
5 We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.

6 Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and stand upright.

9 Save, LORD!
May the King answer us when we call.

Today is my Spiritual Birthday Week.  I turned to the Lord one winter week in January many years ago.  The Lord had been preparing my heart to know him.

On vacation, in a small church in Tampa, Florida I called on the Name of the Lord and he saved me. This Psalm below was the first Psalm that was read to me by my cousin Maria.

I remember the week this transformation happened to my life because my niece Stephanie had just been born.   I remember I held her in her new crib, a beautiful new life, how precious.....and then my husband, my son & I went on vacation.

I too became new  that week.  Praise the Lord! Stephanie is 23 years old today and I have been serving the Lord for 23 years as well. Happy Birthday Stephanie...I love you! Stephanie never forget that the Lord loves you!  Draw close to him, he indeed is our help!

God bless you!~Liz
