Day 182 July 1 Psalm 92:1
Psalm 92:1-3What a beautiful thing, God, to give thanks, to sing an anthem to you, the High God!To announce your love each daybreak, sing your faithful presence all through the night,Accompanied by dulcimer and harp, the full-bodied music of strings.My grandmother, ADS, wrote scripture songs. This was one of her favorites and her favorite way of waking me up in the morning when I was staying with her.It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,I can still hear the thundering notes and her soft quavering voice as she played this and sang it. The sound will always accompany this scripture as well as her thoughts on it.I it a good thing to give thanks to God. It is a good thing to sing praises to his name. It is a good thing to remind myself of his loving kindness every morning. And it is a good thing to remember his faithfulness every night.Lord, remind me of your loving kindness and your faithfulness. You love me and you prepare the day for me. Forgive me for not trusting enough in your goodness to look forward to everyday with you.Help me to see your care and love for me today. Guide me through each challenge and bring me safely to the other side. Let me sing of your goodness and mercy.
