Thanks to the Lord

I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
Psalms 9:1‭-‬2 NASB
https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.9.1-2.NASB

God is good in all His ways

Give thanks to Him all of your days

Through feast or famine

weak or strong as can be imagined

He is God

Worthy of praise

Decisions

Family depending
Reputation hinging
Career upending
Fear

Fear erupting
Indecision paralyzing
Just have to keep moving forward
Trusting

The insides quiver
The mind races
What will I do
Prayer

Calming presence
Loving assurance
Big things beginning
Ordinary extraordinary

Derive strength from your storm by faith in knowing that God has a plan

Derive strength from your storm by faith in knowing that God has a plan.

“My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of life And peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body And refreshment to your bones.”
Proverbs 3:1‭-‬8 NASB

Your Sweet Name

My God, my Jesus

How excellent is Your name

All authorities and kings

Pale beneath Your fame

My soul brings you worship

For all that I have gained

But all of it is worthless

Without Your sweet name

Chorus:

Your sweet name

More powerful than the oceans

Your sweet name

Commands the wind and rain

Your sweet name

Can heal the blind and broken

No sweeter thing ever spoken

Than Your name
