Thanks-living

November 22, 2012

“God, mark us with grace and blessing! Smile! The whole country will see how you work, all the godless nations see how you save. God! Let all people thank and enjoy you. Let all people thank and enjoy you. Let all far-flung people become happy and shout their happiness because You judge them fair and square, you tend the far-flung peoples. God! Let people thank and enjoy you. Let all people thank and enjoy you. Earth, display your exuberance! You mark us with blessing, O God, our God. You mark us with blessing, O God. Earth’s four corners — honor him!” Psalm 67 The Message

“We thank you, God, we thank you — your name is our favorite word; your mighty works are all we talk about.” Psalm 75:1 The Message

“Sing to God a brand-new song. He’s made a world of wonders! He rolled up his sleeves, He set things right. God made history with salvation, He showed the world what he could do. He remembered to love us, a bonus to his dear family, Israel — indefatigable love. The whole earth comes to attention, Look — God’s work of salvation!” Psalm 98:1-3 The Message

Thanks-living is the deep work of God’s indefatigable love. You find it in moments overwhelming strain .. in moments of struggle and suffering .. and in the simplest moments of quiet and rest. You find it in Jesus who found you. May God be praised through your life this day. It only takes a moment …

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
