I’m so thankful that our God is gracious, righteous, and full of compassion!

The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The LORD protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. ~Psalm 116:6-7

Have a great weekend!
