My heart exults in the Lord, my horn is exalted in my God. I have swallowed up my enemies; I rejoice in my victory. 1 Samuel 2:1
Devotion snippets: “We have to watch what we eat. Whether we chew up our enemies or swallow our pride, both can leave a bitter aftertaste if our focus in not on the Lord who allows us our passing victories.” by Claire J. King (youth advocate in Bloomington, IN)
Faith quote: “To live without Faith, without a patrimony to defend, without a steady struggle for Truth, that is not living but existing.” by Pier Giorgio Frassati
