God's Mercies

Today I'm thankful that every day God's mercies are new. Several mistakes happened today, due to my lack of forethought and planning, which could have been avoided. I'm glad that despite my failings, God is still the same God and shows us mercy. I'm thankful that He already knows everything about our circumstances before we tell Him. I'm praying for wisdom for the life that I live now. I'm so glad that God has it, and wants to share it with me.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Give Thanks

Give thanks unto the Lord for he is good, his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

I have been especially enjoying the weather and beauty of fall this season. This is the first fall here at our new house and the neighbors in front of us have a big yard with huge trees that had bright orange leaves. It is so beautiful. It is amazing how different places have different types of beauty. God is so creative. When you think of all the places in the world and all the different landscapes with their own beauty it's incredible. Thank you, Lord, for all the beautiful colors and smells of your creation. Thank you that you are good and your love endures forever.... We serve an awesome God. No other "god" is like our God. He knows the stars by name and knows even the hair on our head x 6 billion+ people!!! We must be thankful. We take so much for granted, not even thinking about it. God really is so good.
