Good to Go, God to Thank! 02NOV – #758

Standard

758

I was sitting in the car – in the glorious sunshine – near a food bank yesterday morning.  I was seriously counting my blessings, past and future, and knowing that God gives and takes away but still we choose to say: BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.  (just like the song lyric)…

Before the world closes in each day, our hearing of pain and suffering or even our experiencing of it, we can and should start each day in praise – for simply waking up, for anytime we are simply sitting in the sunshine, for anytime serving Him, and especially for any time that we have the time to rest and refuel to work again.

We praise because we ARE good to go… We are blessed and I often wonder how I was chosen to be so blessed – then I remember we are ALL CHOSEN – if we realize it… Here’s my devotion, written in the car, in the sunshine of God’s grace… (just felt like rhyming in God’s timing…)

Good to Go, God to Thank! 02NOV

Counting our blessings…

Counting my blessings…

We are Good to Go, with God to Thank!

Dropping off extra food to a food bank, we have God to thank for food from His bank.

Having food at all, including easy food from a drive thru, we have God to thank for blessings and follow thru.

Vistas of colorful leaves in the fall, we have God to thank for the chance to see it all.

Sitting in the car in the sunshine, we have God to thank for the extra time…

Being still, we have God to thank for us still being.

Knowing God, we have God to thank for knowing us. THANK GOD!

Good to go, and God to thank.

We count our blessings from God, because our blessings have our back…

Amen


Lyrics of a song that I am blessed to sing:

Blessed Be Your Name by Matt Redman

Blessed Be Your Name

In the land that is plentiful

Where Your streams of abundance flow

Blessed Be Your name

 

Blessed Be Your name

When I’m found in the desert place

Though I walk through the wilderness

Blessed Be Your name

 

Every blessing You pour out, I’ll

Turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

Blessed be Your name

When the sun’s shining down on me

When the world’s ‘all as it should be’

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be Your name

On the road marked with suffering

Though there’s pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name

 

Every blessing You pour out I’ll

Turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name, oh

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

You give and take away

You give and take away

My heart will choose to say

Lord, blessed be Your name

 

God you give and take away

Oh you give and take away

My heart will choose to say

Lord, blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name, oh

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
