His Faithful Love Endures Forever

"His faithful love endures forever." Psalm 136

I am no Psalmist, but today I wanted to do something different as my reading in the Psalms is coming to a close. Captured by the pattern of writing in Psalm 136, I have written my heart's Psalm. May it give praise alone to my Lord.

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
In His great mercy, He spared my life
His faithful love endures forever.
When Doctor's felt there was no hope of survival,
His faithful love endures forever.
I received a miracle from His hand.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to Him who blessed me with a godly family and heritage.
His faithful love endures forever.
He called me to be His own.
His faithful love endures forever.
He adopted me into His forever family.
His faithful love endures forever.
He has led me in safety and watched over me.
His faithful love endures forever.
From wilderness wanderings to mountaintop moments, He has always been with me.
His faithful love endures forever.
His voice has instructed me and His Word has guided me.
His faithful love endures forever.
Early in the morning I seek Him.
His faithful love endures forever.
At night He is still with me.
His faithful love endures forever.
When fear attacks and worry threatens,
His faithful love endures forever.
He reminds me that I am His.
His faithful love endures forever.
He has gifted me with a husband and a son.
His faithful love endures forever.
He is shaping me into a godly wife, mother daughter, friend.
His faithful love endures forever.
His patience with me is unending.
His faithful love endures forever.
He knows my secret longings and innermost thoughts.
His faithful love endures forever.
He travels with me through valleys and seasons of drought.
His faithful love endures forever.
When my heart is cold, He warms me with His love.
His faithful love endures forever.
He forgives all my sin.
His faithful love endures forever.
He takes great delight in who I am.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to the LORD, the God of heaven.
His faithful love endures forever.

Joy, great words! I wanted to let you know I appreciate your encouragement and insight on Lysa's blog the past few days. I think I recall your words last year as you prepared to fly, alone was it? Anyway I have fears as I will be doing the same thing, but I trust and know God is leading me and He will bless obedience. Anyway thanks for always taking the time to share - it means a lot. Blessings to you, Jill
