When I woke up this morning, my heart was already singing,
“I will sing of the mercy of the Lord forever!”
This was a tough week, and I am so glad it is the Sabbath of rest! The difficult trials of life are not going to go away, as long as I am sojourning in this fallen world. But the fact of the matter is, there are just as many blessings from the Lord surrounding me every day as there are trials and problems. What will I focus my attention on? I choose to focus on the goodness and mercy of the Lord!
I am in the habit, each morning, of writing down in my prayer journal, three of the wonderful things the Lord did for me the previous day. Today I am so grateful from the bottom of my heart, that there is an open door between my Abba Father and me, so that I can come BOLDLY before the throne of grace! He welcomes me into His presence!
