Blessed be the Lord...

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. (Palm 68:19). How wonderful to have a day set aside to give special glory and praise to God for daily giving us benefits and blessings! Well, of course, we should remember to do it every day, but it's great to have a day set aside just to recognize God's goodness--from huge blessings like giving us freely the chance to have eternal life completely paid for by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (all we have to do is repent and believe) to the littlest of blessings like finding the perfect pair of shoes at a yard sale for 25 cents. I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. (Psalm 69:30) Even in the toughest of times or situations which we've all seen and/or been through, God is good--beyond good--and to Him be glory and praise. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 7:12)
