“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” (Psalm 103:2)
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…I don’t know if Elizabeth Browning ever counted ways how she loved her Heavenly Father when she wrote her poem but I know my list of how I love God can go on and on forever and that there will be no end to it because there’s no end to how He loves me.
As I write my testimony that I was asked to share with a group of ladies tonight, I find myself walking the memory lane, having trouble remembering things from my past…all the bad and unkind things seem so far away now and all I remember is God’s grace and His light throughout my life. No, I didn’t necessarily see His love and protection then, but now that I know the truth, that is all I see. Remembering good is not hard for me because God is good and I thank God for His goodness that goes on and on and on, just like my list of how I love Him.
I hear my little Chloe bear’s little whimpering as she’s waking up from her sweet morning nap and I thank God for His goodness and graciousness for entrusting me that precious child of his. I pray that I can train my daughters to remember God’s goodness all the days of their lives.
