Great-Full

Sometimes I talk to God and find myself saying things like this out loud to him.

Really?

Are you serious?

Thank you Father.

…usually with a smile and tears streaming down my face. It’s hard to explain, but these tears come from a deep sacred place within me (Holy Spirit tears) …the depth of this gratitude washes over my entire being. I am completely overwhelmed by his goodness and how he takes care of me.

I’ve been on a very personal journey over the past year and as I’ve focused on being intentional about leaning in and putting my trust in him, caring for myself and feeding my spirit with things that point me towards him, I am constantly amazed…he keeps showing up in both big and small ways. He is so much greater than anything of this world, and I am incredibly humbled to have a personal relationship with THE GOD of the universe.

My flesh may be weak, but as I breathe in these truths and live a life of worship and purpose, I am renewed and refreshed.

I am his child.

I am blessed.

I am loved.

My pastor had been preaching a series from Psalm 145 that is so relatable to me right now. Amazing how that happens.

Click here to here his messages.

Because he is great, I am full.

“I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your saints shall bless you! They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power, to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. [The Lord is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.] The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works. The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them. The Lord preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭145:1-21‬ ‭ESV‬‬
