It is good to give thanks to the LORD
and sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
and Your faithfulness by night…
To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
~ Psalm 92:1-2, 15 NASB
We’ve had a long couple of weeks here, friends, and I am worn out. It seems this summer has put me solidly in my place and reminded me how much I need Jesus in my life. He is my rock, an unfailing fortress when I am found lacking.
He is here — right here — in the midst of the chaos and drama and mess. He is here when I’m yelling at my kids (oh yes, and I’m not proud of it) and impatient with the road-construction traffic and binge-eating from the stress of a long day.
And the best part? He’s not shaking His head, wagging a finger at me and planning an appropriate “consequence” for my actions. He’s loving me, wooing me back to Him, dropping little reminders of His love right into my lap amidst the troubles and failures.
So today, I choose to give thanks, to sing praises to His name and remember that He is my rock, so faithful even when I am not.
Thank you, Jesus. I love you so.

I’ve committed to memorizing a passage of scripture every month.
This month’s verse is Psalm 92:1-2 & 15, above.
Won’t you join me in hiding His word in your heart?
