Better than a fortune cookie

"The works of the Lord are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them. His work is honorable and glorious, and His righteousness endures forever. He has made His wonderful works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion." Ps. 111:2-5

There's plenty of stuff you and I have to complain about today. If you think about yourself long enough, you'll get utterly depressed. We live messed up lives in a messed up world.

But catch this..

God is at work! He's working in YOUR life right this very minute. This Psalm describes the works of the Lord as great, honorable, glorious, and WONDERFUL. Take heart, Friend. Your God is full of compassion and totally into dishing out grace. He's not frustrated or ticked off at you today. The Father is going to do wonderful things in and through you. Just hang in there! Lets study the works of the Lord and take pleasure in them. Stop sniffling and complaining. Nobody likes a crybaby. Choose with me today to be thankful for what God has done and excited for what He's getting ready to do. Listen, I promise you that you won't be disappointed if you'll just be patient and let God do his thing in his timing.

Hey, speaking of "wonderful" ….

"And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isa. 9:6

Jesus is Mr. Wonderful for cryin out loud!! Perfect love casts out fear. He perfectly loves you so don't freak out. Do a little dance or something. Wonderful things are coming your way. Just stick close to the source of wonderful-ness.
