God is very faithful and loyal. God does everything He promises. I can count on that.
My job is to be thankful. I am to thank God with my whole heart.
Some days I can see what is coming. It doesn’t look good. I am on the brink of death. Doom is on the horizon. I am not exaggerating. It is the truth. We all experience it in our lives.
But God is in a good mood. I can focus on God and His goodness. I don’t have to give in.
Yes, my job is to be thankful
God, you did everything you promised, and I’m thanking you with all my heart. You pulled me from the brink of death, my feet from the cliff-edge of doom. Now I stroll at leisure with God in the sunlit fields of life. | Psalm 56:12-13 (The Message Bible)
