Psalm 117:2 “For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!”
This morning when I woke up I was already singing praises. That does not happen every day but when it does I take joy in that moment. I spent my prayer time trying to praise and thank the Lord for the people and their situations instead of petitioning for them. I thanked the Lord for medical care, for support systems, for friends and for faith. I praised the Lord for the freedom of religion, freedom to homeschool and freedom to seek knowledge. I praised the Lord for the founding fathers and the vision they had for this country. I thanked him for downtime and inspiration, energy and rest. It was hard not to ask the Lord for anything but to turn each request in to a prayer of thanks and praise. This verse called me to do that today. His steadfast love is great toward us and He is always faithful; forever and ever. Praise the Lord!
I am filled with praise and joy for the love and grace you give me every moment, every day for eternity. I have seen your hand working in my life and in the lives of others. The evidence is clear; you are truly faithful and loving. Thank you for filling me with those blessings and allowing me to be a servant of yours, spreading joy, praise and love to the world around me. Amen.
