The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him.
Even in the midst of anguish and heartache, we can be grateful. Even when dreams are at stake and we're in the midst of pain and fear, we can trust in Him. Our Heavenly Father will help us, will give us strength and protection and for that we can thank Him. We can thank Him that He knows our future and will lead us to walk in His will for our lives. We can thank Him for His plans ultimately being for our good and for His glory, even if they don't make sense to us in the present. We can thank Him for the hope that lies in Him holding our future and for the comfort He brings when holds us in the present. We can always thank Him, simply for being our good, good Father.
