GOD’S ETERNALITY---AND OURS
Jesse M. Hendley
A beautiful Psalm to the Lord is our study and
meditation selection for this month. Psalm 90 is a
prayer of Moses, a prayer that proclaims the
eternality of God and brings us to the realization of
the eternality which each of us faces. We begin with
"Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling Place in all
generations. Before the mountains were brought forth,
