Today is a good day! God is so good! He has blessed me far more than I ever deserved to be blessed.
I still have things swarming around that bother me but I know He is using all of these things (good and bad) to shape me into a better person. It may hurt a little now but if I just trust Him this pain will be nothing more than a faint memory in the near future.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28
We are to praise Him always, in the good times and in the bad. It is easy to praise Him when things are going good but it can be a test of faith to keep the praises going when things are tough.
(A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.) I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. – Psalm 34:1-4
So how is your day going? What are you thankful for? Take a minute right now not to ask for anything but just to thank God for His blessings on you and your family.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
– 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
