Hallelujah for the third day! What a glorious thought! God always delivers! Thank you for this word.

I do so love this scripture from Job, as I mentioned before. It just moves me to joyful tears. My Redeemer lives! Though my flesh is destroyed, with my eyes I will see God. Thank you, again.

Thank you for all the Third Day scripture verses you posted. How refreshing it is to my heart to read this post today, dear Gail. And the Job 19:25 is just so appropriate as we remember the resurrection of our Lord.
