Today my heart is at peace. Today I feel content. Today I feel happy. Today I know that God is good.
Sure, I know for a fact that He is good every day whether trudging through the valleys or skipping on the mountaintops but today I feel especially blessed. Why?! I don’t think I can really pin-point it to something specific. Perhaps trying to keep a thankful heart when things seems to be falling apart helps, or soothing my soul with the precious Word of God, or enjoying the sparks of romance and delight between my husband and I, or anticipating the arrival of our little one….it could be due to any one of these or even other things, I don’t know. For a fact, I do know that I’m thankful that my bouts of sickness seem to be lessening little by little. 🙂 I even have a bit more energy and enthusiasm to exercise which makes me feel good mentally and emotionally. Getting more involved in our new church family and growing meaningful relationships is encouraging to my heart. Even sitting here and enjoying the aroma of a Woodwick candle burning and seeing beautiful red roses sitting on my kitchen table make me feel special and blessed.
It’s so easy for me to complain over trite matters that are already under God’s control! Why can’t I always see that there is so much goodness that surrounds me on both the dark and sunny days of life?! I am unworthy of my Saviour’s love. I am unworthy of His care and His longing for my love and devotion. I know that in a brief moment I can be tempted to become discouraged or even upset about a situation and I can easily give in to that temptation. But right now, I sit here and I praise Jesus for being my Almighty God and my All-Sufficient One! He is worthy to be praised, is He not?!
