Part 5 : Pulling Into the Stronghold " My Mighty Men"

Welcome to Pulling into the Stronghold Lesson 5! I would like to start out with a little

Bird Church! Remember, while I was in the stronghold, during a time of extended illness, God brought me over 113 different species of birds to photograph during the first year? Some of them came right to my window, while others were in the park near my home. At the beginning of this lesson, enjoy photos of sparrows along with my singing of the song, "The Refiner's Fire."

Next, we head back into the scriptures with David in the Strongholds of Israel. David was not alone during his time in the wilderness. While David was in the Cave of Abdullum, the Lord brought him many men to shore him up!

(1 Samuel 22:1-2) He called them his "Mighty Men." (2 Samuel 23:8-39) I had "mighty men" when I was holed up in the stronghold, too! As you listen to the story of my strong warriors, think about all the many ways we can minister to each other!
