Life happens. It has been a while since I have been able to write. In, fact it has been a while since I have been able to even think of writing. The whirlwind of work projects, service projects, church events and major life changes. Blend that all together, and the energy you have left at the end of the day is enough to carry yourself to bed. Please don’t hear the wrong tone. It was all good stuff and just adds to my mental list of how blessed my life has become.
Reflecting back on my life, the first half was very dark. There was no list of blessings, just sorrow. However, a change happened at about the halfway point, and each day as my faith grows so do my blessings and my joy. God loves and restores those who love Him! I feel like the poster child of God’s love, and I know I am not alone in this. Ask anyone who truly loves Jesus, and I am certain they have their own story. They might just be unpracticed at sharing it. The other great thing is He loves us first! His love is already there waiting for everyone; but when we reciprocate our love, that is when change really starts to happen!
His Steadfast Love Endures Forever
A Psalm for giving thanks.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
Psalms 100 ESV
