Psalm 13:5-6 “But I trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.  I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.”

Blessings from the Lord never cease.  Since the beginning of time; since the moment He created us He longs for us to call his name and embrace Him as Lord.  When I have strayed from the path in the past, I heard voices clearly telling me there is no hope.  The enemies of the heart are harder to battle since we cannot see them but they are just as real as anything we see with our eyes.  In the heat of battle the Spirit fights with us and for us.  When we grow weak, the Spirit is strong for us.  We may falter but we will not be forsaken.  Trust in the steadfast love of the Lord.  If you are feeling lost or forgotten, shake off the lies that are telling you that and shout to the Lord.  If you recognize that you have been saved and redeemed by the Lord, let your heart rejoice in the salvation of the Lord.  As you reflect back on your days, look for the bounty of the Lord pouring out over you and then join me in singing to the Lord because He has dealt bountifully with you and with me!

Lord,
Thank you again for all you have given.  I cannot begin to say thank you enough times or in enough ways for the bounty and love you pour into my life.  Help my heart sing in praise and thanksgiving, help my life be a thank offering to you and a testament to your steadfast love.  I ask all of these things in the name of Jesus, our Savior and friend.  Amen.
