Author’s Note: This is a new category for LBTK called “Friday Five.” I am asking God to show me a relationship between a group of five things and to give me a good word to speak about them. Pray for me, that I listen to the Holy Spirit and go where He leads me. In Christ’s love, Sandy
Since the first of 2012, I have felt compelled to immerse myself in the Word of God so that It will be alive and active in me. Over the past two weeks, several scriptures have just jumped out at me because I found that I already knew them — in song. You might just find that you know them, too!

Blessed be the name of the Lord, now and forever. Psalm 113:2 (NLT)
“The sounds of joy and laughter. The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will be heard again, along with the joyous songs of people bringing thanksgiving offerings to the LORD. They will sing, ‘Give thanks to the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, for the LORD is good. His faithful love endures forever!’ For I will restore the prosperity of this land to what it was in the past, says the LORD.” Jeremiah 33:11 (NLT)
“Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: ‘Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'” Mark 11:9 (NKJV)
