. . .


As I was reading in my Bible this morning, I "came across" Psalm 136 which begins,

"O give thanks unto the Lord;
for He is good:
for His mercy endureth forever."

Of course, with Thanksgiving tomorrow, the first part grabbed me. But then, as I read through the whole chapter, it's hard not to notice each verse ending, "for His mercy endureth forever." So often, we think of God's mercies as the good things and we thank Him only for those things. But sometimes, God's mercies are disguised with trials, Him withholding our perception of "what's good for me" (Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good, to them who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."). It is easy to list the benefits, blessings, and good things, but do we "in every thing give thanks?" (Ephesians 5:20) It is quite perspective-changing to thank God for even the difficult things of life!

Has the Lord given you a special verse for this Thanksgiving? I'd love to hear it!
