8.22.2021 – Surprised by His Lovingkindness

“I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, the praises of the Lord,
According to all that the Lord has granted us,
And the great goodness toward the house of Israel,
Which He has granted them according to His compassion
And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.”—Isaiah 63:7

Lord, my heart is overwhelmed this morning— in a good way

I am overwhelmed

by the way You so beautifully catch me off guard…

with Your lovingkindness,

and with Your goodness,

and with Your nearness.

How You speak into me,

with such tenderness…

the encouragement, and the direction that I need.

How You surprise me with Your nearness—with Your presence,

with what I need reminding of

in the most unexpected kinds of ways,

within the most “unlikely” kinds of places.

God, You are always like a treasure that I find…

time after time after time… ✨

O God, how extravagant is your cherishing love!
    All mankind can find a hiding place
    under the shadow of your wings.”—Psalm 36:7

…and God I begin to see Your lovingkindness—everywhere.

You’re always so much nearer than I think. 💖 🍃 ☀️

Thank You, Father. 💝
