How was your week?
Some days or weeks everything seems to go well.
Others….not so much.
One thing I’ve been learning is….that regardless of my circumstance….God is always good to me.
Here’s the New Living Translation of Psalm 13:5&6:
But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me.
What a great verse to meditate on when you’re in a difficult circumstance.
I’m guessing you’re wondering why I would say that.
It’s imperative that we speak truth into our minds and hearts.
So, read this verse out loud. By doing so, you are speaking truth to yourself, and praising God not only for what he has done…
but for what he will do.
I thought you’d enjoy seeing this same verse (Psalm 13:5-6) from The Message:
I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms—I’m celebrating your rescue.
I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers.
I’ll be honest. My current situation may not look like God has rescued me. But, he has surely provided for us in unimaginable ways.
All my prayers may not be answered….but I am ‘full’ of answered prayers. Several were answered before I even prayed.
Yes…God is always good. Always!
It’s Joy Day!
I love Joy Day! There isn’t anything better than each of us sharing the good things God has done in our lives this week. Both in the happy and in the challenges.
Will you join with me in counting ‘seven’ from the past week?
I‘m grateful to God for…
- the beauty of sunsets, and flowers, enjoyed on each evening’s walk.
- the best sweet corn, enjoyed nearly every day all week long.
- your faithfulness, God!
- your amazing way of providing for our needs. God you blow me away!
- help in packing all the china…of which I have a ‘wee’ bit.
- dear friends who are opening their home to us.
- praying friends….even those I’ve never met in person on the blog.
And isn’t it a funny thing that I could hardly stop at ‘seven.’ I wanted to keep tapping in more goodness of the Lord.
Now it your turn! Please join me by tapping in your ‘seven’ in the ‘share your extraordinary thoughts’ section below.
Have you noticed? Something amazing happens when we ‘write out’ our thanks. Like me…you just might not want to stop at ‘seven.’ For more fun counting God’s gifts…take the Joy Dare here.
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate you and your sweet comments make my day.
May you join me in ‘singing’ the goodness of the Lord.
And may your heart be filled with JOY!
I’d be delighted if you’d share the extraordinary goodness here with your friends
