“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” psalm 107:1
Let me tell you what my Heavenly Father has done for me. He had the birds sing me a good morning song when I woke up. Although, I didn’t want to open my eyes, he still gave me sight. I stumbled over a shoe as I rushed to get ready, but he didn’t let me fall.
When I stepped outside of the house, he shined his light on me and he caressed my cheeks with the wind. His favor was upon me as he turned the traffic lights green at just the right time. He kept an army of angels around me to watch over and protect me.
When I arrived at work, I was knee-deep in chaos. Problems sprang up one after another. I started to worry. I called out to him in my frustration and he calmed my spirit. He comforted me and renewed my strength. He restored order to my chaos. He replaced my confusion with his wisdom.
In the evening, he lit a path home with the light of the moon and stars. Although, the birds were asleep, he still had crickets to sing me a goodnight song. Though I was surrounded by darkness, I was still protected. My body was weary but he let me rest in his arms.
Before I drifted off to sleep, I thought about how all day long, my Father’s grace and mercy were with me. I thought about how he protected and guided me. When I felt sick, he healed me. When I ignored him or rebelled against his will, he patiently waited for me. When I whined and grumbled because I didn’t get my way, he never stopped loving me. He never stopped blessing me. He always helped me. This is what my Heavenly Father has done for me. If he did it for me, I know he will do it for you too. You’re a child of God, look up, his arms are already outstretched for you. Grab a hold of him and don’t let go.
