August 20, Today’s thought — Bountifully

Last August I brought home tiger lily bulbs from Grandma Crain.
This August I found tiger lilies at Cozy Acres.
I’m happy.

Good Morning

Several thoughts lately have been on ‘waiting.’
I really don’t know why.
I don’t feel anxious about anything.
I don’t feel like I’m ‘waiting’ for anything.
Perhaps I’m being prepared to wait.

I was encouraged with these verses from Psalm 13.

How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD?
for ever?
how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
having sorrow in my heart daily?
how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, . . .

But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto the LORD,
because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

bountifully – Giving freely and generously; bighearted, bounteous, giving, openhanded, handsome, freehanded, liberal, big
generous – willing to give and share unstintingly;

Even though, the Psalmist was in a place dark,
feeling forsaken and alone;
He still had hope.
He still knew the bounty of God.
He didn’t let the circumstances in life rob him of that confidence.

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
