Happy Birthday to everyone born on January 4!  

I am Jordan Montgomery Lewis (a/k/a "Jessica's husband," "Dad," and "Monty"). Jessica and I volunteer with several ministries at Watermark and co-captain a greeting team monthly. We’re both attorneys who graduated from SMU Law School. Though I am from Louisiana, I have adopted Dallas as my home (Cholula > Tabasco).

Here's the part of my story to remember: I have often come to ruin through my decisions and the decisions of others; yet God has brought me out of my distress. I trust Him; I fear Him; I know He will save me.

SAVE ME, O MY GOD

Psalm 3

Save Me, O My God

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.

3:1 O Lord, how many are my foes!
Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul,
there is no salvation for him in God. Selah [1]

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah

I lay down and slept;
I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
who have set themselves against me all around.

Arise, O Lord!
Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
you break the teeth of the wicked.

Salvation belongs to the Lord;
your blessing be on your people! Selah (ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Psalm 1:1:

Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
