I will sing the Lord’s praise, for He has been good to me. – (Psalm 13:6, NIV)
Then I will sing to the Lord because He was so good to me. – (Psalm 13:6, ERV)
I will sing to the Eternal, for He is always generous with me. – (Psalm 13:6, VOICE)
There is something about reaching a Friday after a busy week that floods my heart with gratitude. Right now, days are long, especially when my sleep is disrupted, yet somehow, God always grants me the strength I need to navigate whatever comes my way. In this season of new, I am so grateful for God’s goodness. I am ever aware of Him holding me up by His loving hands. From the early onset of daylight in the mornings so that I can get outside and walk the dogs before work, to the ability to share dinner together as a whole family, these are but an example of how I am acutely aware of God’s goodness. May we ever recognize the goodness of God in our lives that surround us, and sing Him praise for His great love.
I sing to the Lord,
For He is so good;
His love is outpoured,
In busy seasons,
He shows us His grace;
Grants strength when weary,
Throughout all our days.
When things seem slow down,
The Lord provides rest;
His love is lavish,
For He knows us best.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your loving kindness that meets us where we are and provides what we need. Thank You that You are present and bless us with Your peace and strength to navigate each new day. Thank You for the songs in our hearts that remind us to give You the glory. Forgive us for neglecting to recognize Your goodness when things seem overwhelmingly busy. Teach us to pause and breathe in Your grace, for You meet our needs throughout all our days. Show us how to love those around us as You call us to love. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we sing praise unto You, for You are so good. Amen.
