Satisfy me in the morning with your unfailing love that I may sing for joy and be glad all my days! Make me glad for as many days as you have afflicted me, for as many years as I have seen trouble.
May the favor of the Lord rest upon me. Establish the work of my hands for me, yes, establish the work of my hands! (from Psalm 90)
Make me glad.
Establish the work of my hands.
What is the first thing you think about when you wake in them morning? Lately, I just don’t know what to think. My thoughts have not been heavenly minded. I have everything to be glad about and nothing to be sad about. Yet, my frame sighs and I am like a living zombie.
This was one of those hungry moments when God grabs our hearts with tender tenacity. His Word wafts fragrantly through our innermost being. We are riveted as we behold His beauty. It’s a moment when we are taken aback and tantalized as we taste His Word.
God is so good.
“So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There is far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.” 2 Cor 4: 16-18 The Message
There is far more here than meets the eye.
God is so good.
Declare it today with me:
You satisfy us.
You make us glad.
You establish the work of our hands.
