Triumphant Victorious Reminders Inspired by the Holy Spirit Written by: Teresa Criswell "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise.  Give thanks to him and bless his name.  For the Lord is good.  His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation." ~ Psalm 100:4-5 ~ Image from Are you being seduced?
