His perfect faithfulness

O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name,
For in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago.
Isaiah 25:1

I praise You Lord, for You are perfectly faithful to Your plans and purposes. You will not allow anyone to alter them.

I praise You for You are perfectly faithful to Yourself - You do not change. You are not changed by circumstances or situations.

I praise You for You are perfectly faithful to me - Your desire for me does not change and Your desires for me do not change.

Thank You my perfectly faithful God!

To Begin

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name."
Psalm 100:4

It has been a while since I have been here to write out my thankfulness for His gifts. I have so very much to give thanks for - how amazing it is that our God reminds us to enter His presence with thanks. My Father knows. He knows that without being reminded I would come to Him in so many other attitudes: shamed, burdened, bothered, rushed, apathetic. Choosing thankfulness lifts my eyes to my Father's - thank You. Through thankfulness I am humbled by His goodness to this beloved piece of dust. Perspective is righted. Thank you.

This day, I thank You!

Your Word which speaks life to my heart
Your Spirit Who breathes life
Your Son Who is the Life
Yourself, my Father, my God, the Source
