Happy Tuesday and God Bless You,
The Turkey is still around for leftovers, but the Thanksgiving decorations are stored away and the house looks like Christmas is here. The weather certainly indicates that Winter is here! Wow. It is cold outside.
Before we completely turn our hearts and minds to the Christmas season, I draw our attention to this week’s memory verse which is one more call to give thanks.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and
praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness
continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5
Not only does this verse call us to give thanks but calls us to consider the Lord’s goodness. In fact, the last two Sundays we sang a new song about the Lord’s goodness, and I’ve been singing that song in my heart and mind ever since. The refrain that has stuck with me is -
And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God
I keep thinking about good God has been from my childhood until now, literally “all my life.” And what amazes me about our Lord is that He doesn’t change and He is no respecter of persons. This means that God is good to all His children, all the time, all throughout history.
Please join me in praising God for His goodness. Take a moment and recall the many ways God’s goodness has been made known to you, then give Him Thanks and Praise.
p.s. The calling hours for Pat Melendy are this afternoon, 3pm-6pm, and the funeral tomorrow at 12pm, both held at Miles Funeral Home in Holden. Her tribute is below. Please continue to pray God’s comfort for the Melendy family.
