(It’s Thursday, I don’t blog on Thursdays, I blog on Wednesdays, but I didn’t get it done yesterday. Pretend it is Wednesday. But only for the purposes of this blog. We don’t want to go backwards in the week.)

Yesterday I was reading Psalm 9 and it just resonated with me so I wanted to share it with you.

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

The Lord reigns forever;

    he has established his throne for judgment.
He rules the world in righteousness
and judges the peoples with equity.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.

11 Sing the praises of the Lord, enthroned in Zion;
proclaim among the nations what he has done.

I am giving thanks with all my heart and proclaiming to all of you today that my God is good. He is present. He is healer. He is provider.

No, things aren’t perfect. No, I don’t feel like I am 100%. No I don’t feel like we have what we need. But these truths about who God is are true regardless of how I feel and what things look like from my perspective.

And that is enough reason to give thanks with all my heart.
