Home again – Great Is the Lord!

After an intense few weeks of packing, minimizing, and two full days of driving. We arrived safely in Fort Lauderdale. We are relieved to have made it and are ready to settle into a new routine. Justin starts his dispatch training October 9th. Thank you for your prayers. We are tired but thankful we get to fill mom’s house with some crazy grandkids.

I have so much I would like to share, stories of His grace and goodness. They will come… another day. For the moment, I’d like to share a Psalm that has helped me muster the strength to continue on through sleepless nights and waves of grief. As well as, SO much change. God is Good… Even when situations are bad.

Psalm 145

Great Is the Lord

A Song of Praise. Of David.

145 I will extol you, my God and King,
    and bless your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless you
    and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
    and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall commend your works to another,
    and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
    and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
    and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
    and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
    and his mercy is over all that he has made.

10 All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
    and all your saints shall bless you!
11 They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom
    and tell of your power,
12 to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds,
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures throughout all generations.

[The Lord is faithful in all his words
    and kind in all his works.] 
14 The Lord upholds all who are falling
    and raises up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food in due season.
16 You open your hand;
    you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
    and kind in all his works.
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
    he also hears their cry and saves them.
20 The Lord preserves all who love him,
    but all the wicked he will destroy.

21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
    and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.

 

Thank you Father for your provision, your goodness, your grace. You’re good when things are bad. We don’t have to understand, we just have to trust. Help me praise when I’m weak and trust when I want to doubt.

Goodnight friends.
