Inspired by Psalm 32:11

Let today be the day
You let go of strife
Look to the Lord
For your life
Receive His
Joy.

Sing!

Psalm 32:11 (TPT)
So celebrate the goodness of God!
He shows this kindness to everyone who is his.
Go ahead—shout for joy,
all you upright ones who want to please him!

Never Shaken

He knew.
He saw.
He heard.
He waited.
He answered.
He watches.
He cares.
He forgives.
He loves.
He reigns.

As 2019 marches forward, resolutions and goals may start to fade. Instead of feeling hopeless and incompetent, remember the One who gives us hope.

God knows and makes provision for us in times of disappointment. He knows our hearts and gives us daily access to the following,

  • His unfailing love
  • His mercy
  • His grace
  • His hope
  • His truth
  • His guidance

He is always with us and we can always begin again. Every morning is a fresh start.

Psalm 11:4 (TPT)

Yet the Eternal One is never shaken— He is still found in His temple of holiness, reigning as Lord and King over all. He is closely watching everything that happens. And with a glance, His eyes examine every heart.

A Thank You Note 1.3.19

I am amazed, not unfazed, by the beauty of my days.

When I consider the work of Your hand, the beauty of this land, it’s hard to understand.

Why you pay attention to man.

I am equally inspired, even when tired, how so admired

Is the evening splendor and graceful contender, sunset in all is grandeur.

Who am I? Why show this to me? A masterpiece for all to see?

Then I pause, in my own way applause, grateful for it all.

Lord, You are amazing, You’ve got me dazing and praising

Because there is no escaping Your amazing grace and unfailing love.

Thank You!

Psalm 8 (TPT)
Lord, your name is so great and powerful!

People everywhere see your splendor.
Your glorious majesty streams from the heavens,
filling the earth with the fame of your name!
2 You have built a stronghold by the songs of babies.
Strength rises up with the chorus of singing children.
This kind of praise has the power to shut Satan’s mouth.
Childlike worship will silence
the madness of those who oppose you.
3 Look at the splendor of your skies,
your creative genius glowing in the heavens.
When I gaze at your moon and your stars,
mounted like jewels in their settings,
I know you are the fascinating artist who fashioned it all!
But when I look up and see
such wonder and workmanship above,
I have to ask you this question:
4 Compared to all this cosmic glory,
why would you bother with puny, mortal man
or be infatuated with Adam’s sons?
5 Yet what honor you have given to men,
created only a little lower than Elohim,
crowned like kings and queens with glory and magnificence.
6 You have delegated to them
mastery over all you have made,
making everything subservient to their authority,
placing earth itself under the feet of your image-bearers.
7–8 All the created order and every living thing
of the earth, sky, and sea—
the wildest beasts and all the sea creatures—
everything is in submission to Adam’s sons.
9 Lord, your name is so great and powerful.
People everywhere see your majesty!
What glory streams from the heavens,
filling the earth with the fame of your name!
