Musing on Psalm 13:6



It's great to be back after a refreshing spring break! I think that's why I chose this particular picture with spring blossoms. This week I've had the chance to really feel this verse. But it's the last verse in a rather somber Psalm by David. And I felt that this week as well.

Wednesday, we'll unpack the entire Psalm. It's short, stop hyperventilating.

Meditation/Musings: Think on all the things that seem small or trivial in your life, but are good things. Waking up. Kids that are healthy. Breathing without machines. A chocolate bar. Coffee. Warm weather. Oh how good God is! Remember the big things that have happened in your life: safety from a car wreck, a good report from the medical lab, a disappointment that became a blessing after all. A hurt that turned into a ministry.

God is so good to us. Truly, in all circumstances, He deals bountifully with us. He is good to us.

Name one good thing whether large or small that has happened already today--and it might be very early for you right now!

  1. I'm so glad you had a refreshing spring break! It's been terribly cold here--and we have freezing rain this morning. Blech. But...I scrounged up enough food to make kids' lunches, threw the pile of dishes in the dishwasher, we're all healthy, and I'm on my second cup of coffee. It's all good. :)

    1. That is all good! I had to make my own coffee this morning since DH left for work very early. I made it pretty strong so 2 cups did me in! :)

  2. Had my favorite breakfast (Greek yogurt and granola) and woke up to a nice book review. :) That's always a good thing. LOL

  3. My electricity came back on in time for me to get ready for work. (The storm knocked it out around 4:00am) A shower in the dark would not have been a good thing. And no coffee? Oh no!

    1. It was outrageous this morning, but our power didn't go out. Yikes! Um no coffee...that's a problem.

  4. YAY for refreshing spring breaks! It's good to have you back. One good thing that happened to me so far is waking up to my kitty cat staring me straight in the face purring like a jet engine to be fed. She looked so cute that I couldn't get annoyed. I was thankful for that smile right off the starting block today!

  6. I realized I had a can of clam chowder in my desk, so I didn't have to get out in a thunderstorm to find lunch! Yay!

  8. I got to run around a basketball court with my kids - all of us healthy enough to do that. Then I got to go buy groceries to feed my family.

    Bountiful. I LOVE that word!
