Your Love | Kim Chipman

S~ Psalm 136 The never-ending story of God’s love. God deserves our praise because His endless love never fails.

O/A~ What would my life look like in this Psalm?

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.

to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures forever.
who made the great lights—
His love endures forever. the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever. the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever.

to him who struck down the fear in my soul
His love endures forever.
and brought hope to my heart
His love endures forever.
with a mighty hand and outstretched arm;
His love endures forever.

to him who pulled me out of my self loathing
His love endures forever.
and brought me through dark, dark days
His love endures forever.
but swept my sin and pride aside
His love endures forever.

to him who led me through Navy relocations, babies and marital tension;
His love endures forever.

to him who struck down great temptations,
His love endures forever.
and killed mighty idols in my heart—
His love endures forever.
Pride king of the evil one
His love endures forever.
and selfishness king of the world—
His love endures forever.
and gave hope, forgiveness, grace and mercy as an inheritance,
His love endures forever.
an inheritance to me.
His love endures forever.

He remembered me in my low state
His love endures forever.
and freed me from my enemies.
His love endures forever.
He gives food to every creature.
His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures forever.

P~ Thank You, Lord. Amen.

A Life Well Lived | Joni Tyner

S~ We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you to share in His Kingdom and glory. 1 Thessalonians 2:12 (NLT)

O~ Paul is urging the believers of Thessalonica to live a life of excellence—a life that gives God glory.

A/P~ Dear Lord,  I know what pleases You, yet I seem to frequently fail at doing things I know would give You glory, or, I do things that are NOT reflective of the image of Christ.  As I continue to follow You, I want to see progression in my faith journey–to live a life that is led by Your Holy Spirit.  I desire to live with joy, humility and steadfast faith.  Please grow in my a deep passion to read Your Word so that I can experience true, lasting transformation.  I love You.
