God You Are My God!

Exhausted from the long search for work in 2011-12, God has landed me in a job with the coolest people. I feel so grateful to the Lord as we approach this season of thanksgiving.

This trial was different.
This time I didn't run.
This time I didn't get angry.
This time it was through tears that I waited.
This time I believed in His promise.
This time I was a better example.

I say all of this ... because I goofed up so many times before when I encountered trials.

Psalm 37:3-7a says, Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him!

Not easy! But stay that course in your life. Keep going to the Lord even when the answers don't come, because ... like David, you will learn that the Lord is faithful and you will be able to say with confidence ... 

I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:13-14

God You are my God! Glorious!
I love you God!

Thank you so much for sharing your awesome testimony today of God's faithfulness to you, and the video of the worship song. I watched it in its entirety while having my morning cup of coffee. Now I feel that I am in the right mind and spirit to enter into the holidays with my family. God is so good isn't He?
