Psa 100: 1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
2 Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!
3 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.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. -ESV
Gracious Father in Heaven,
You are good, and what You do is good; teach us Your ways (Psalm 119). I need to remind myself of Your goodness when I am so exhausted. Remembering that Your steadfast love endures forever, and that Your faithfulness will never end nor change does strengthen my heart and mind. Thank You for telling of Your goodness.
Thank You for the gift of song, and of music. Unlike the birds, who have one particular song for their particular species, You have given us a variety of expressions and creativity in music. And with all the different expressions, I am reminded that I am created in Your image, and that You are such an incredibly creative God!
And, thank You for “owning” me. I belong. I belong to You. You created me, and You keep me. I am Yours. You equip me to do what You ask. You are with me always.
Lord, I do want all the earth to know of Your goodness. Strengthen Your servants who are doing what You ask in hard places. Open people’s eyes and hearts to see You, and to know that You are the gracious Redeemer of their souls. Turn rebellious hearts back to You.
You are good. You are faithful. I am Yours,
