"Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands" Psalm 63:3-4
my car didn't break down today. my cold wasn't miserable today. we didn't get lost. i spent the whole day with my best friend. we talked theology, blessings, struggles, jokes, and embarrassing anecdotes. the temperature was perfect. we're staying at a wonderful new/old friend's house. we drank tea. we reconnected. we laughed. we relaxed.
In other words? Life is good. But you know what? God's steadfast love -- his mercy -- is better than life. This life I lead and the life that keeps me breathing is just nothing compared to God's mercy and love.
That's pretty great.
It's time to praise HIM.
