Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His faithful love endures forever. – (Psalm 118:1, HCSB)
Thank God because He’s good, because His love never quits. – (Psalm 118:1, MSG)
Give thanks to the Eternal because He is always good. He never ceases to be loving and kind. – (Psalm 118:1, VOICE)
This morning, this verse is so fitting. As I sit and gaze out at the sea, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunities that God provides, and the beauty of His creation. Even on difficult days, He is good. His love never leaves us and His mercies are new every morning. May we embrace the loving kindness that He provides and give Him thanks for His unending goodness.
All thanks be to God,
For He is so good;
His love never quits,
His grace is assured.
Forever He’s kind,
His mercy is new;
He shows His love’s true.
Each rise of the sun,
Brings light to the day;
New strength is supplied,
To walk in His way.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are faithful forever and that Your loving kindness knows no end. Forgive us for the times that we neglect to give You thanks for who You are and how You love. Teach us to recognize the glory of Your goodness and the magnitude of Your grace. Show us how to love those around us in ways that make Your loving kindness evident to all. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we give You thanks for who You are and how You love. Amen.
