Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
-Psalm 95:1-2 (ESV)
Lately, I have been dealing with some fear about the financial future of my wife and myself. With her being out of work due to an injury, it is hard to know whether or not she will be working again, in what capacity and at what rate. It is frustrating dealing with the greed of insurance companies and the bureaucracy at large. I am reminded greatly at this time of the need for me to recognize God’s love and that he always makes provision for me. fortunately, I have not received what I deserve but have been given God’s unending and immeasurable grace instead! for that I am so very grateful– especially at this time of year when gratitude should be the first thing on the menu.
