Understand Their End

By Susan Niswonger / 6 months ago

When I’m feeling just a little envious of others, a little prideful of my experience with God or a little sorry for myself, the 73rd Psalm usually comes to my mind.   I especially like to dwell on the 17th verse; “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.”  I find that […]
