Its a short psalm and it kept catching my eye so I decided to read it out loud. And as I did that these things stood out for me...
- Praise the Lord - yes, do it, praise Him
- His mercy and loving-kindness are great toward us. As I read this my jaw dropped (mentally) as I realized that because His mercy is great toward me, I am not going through nearly as much as I could be! What I am going through is tough, very tough, but because of His mercy it is not worse and because of His mercy, I WILL make it! And its because of His mercy that random verses come my way that are JUST the right ones and JUST the right time, God-incidences, acts of kindness, caring friends,etc. God's mercy is overwhelming and undeserved!
- His truth, His faithfulness endures FOREVER! Not just while I behave or while I am getting things right. Even when I mess up, even when I fail, His faithfulness and His truth endure forever!
Small chapter, great truths
