Psalm 106:1-2

1.....Praise the Lord!
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
2....Who can list the glorious miracles of the Lord?
Who can ever praise him enough?

This past Sunday I was heading to our early praise and worship service. I was listening to K-Love radio station and they read these verses, and they stuck in my head.

Think about it. God is good!!!!!!!!!

There is an exclamation point. It's not,Ho Hum, God is good.

It says, GOD IS GOOD!

Praise the Lord, God is good!
His faithful love endures FOREVER.

Not for a few days, hours, or minutes.

And that is a long time.

Who can list the glorious miracles of the Lord?
Who can ever praise him enough?

I was at work today. I have a new job and still getting used to it.
As I was working I started thinking about those verses.

And I started praising God for all my blessings.

My back was hurting (like I said, new job and not used to it), but I praised  God for that because that meant I was alive and had a job.

I praised him for waking me up in time this morning to get to work.

I praised him for blessings.

And my back stopped hurting.

When you get down and out....
Praise God!

When you don't feel like praising God...
do it anyway.....

Praise the Lord, for he is good!!!!!!

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not onto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Trust. Small word. Loaded with meaning.

I did the One Word Challenge. You pray and ask God to give you one word to live by for the whole year.
My word was trust.

I was at the end of my rope. Spiritually, financially.

I was relying on myself to take care of myself.

I can't do it.

As I prayed, the word "trust" came to mind.

I was reminded of another time when God asked me time and time again, "Do you "trust" me?"

8 years ago, through the most trying time of my life,, as I cried out to God, he kept asking me that.

This time, as I asked God to give me a word to live by this year I heard, " Do you trust me?" Do you trust me to take care of you spiritually and financially?"

So I started praying harder. Trembling, I asked God to open my eyes and my heart.
I asked for help to trust him more.

 I took all my bills, laid them on my open Bible and asked God to take care  of them.

I quit my job today.

I walked away from a full time job with benefits and vacation time to go to a temp job at another factory with no benefits or vacation time.


Because I have had a restlessness in me for a few years. I have felt smothered in that place, and I felt it was time for a change.

I didn't get the job that was my first choice.

I asked God to lead me to the right place. I asked that if it was wrong for me to leave my job, that I wouldn't get a call.

Some people will call me crazy, and I'm sure a few already have.

But I'm trusting God.
