Be encouraged in our God today! All is well because He is Lord of all. All of this week's lifewords were about fixing our eyes on Him and the Word, calling upon Him, and waiting upon Him. He is near, He is faithful, He is renewing our strength, He is our Salvation, He is our Refuge, He is our All in All. I've been praying for you each day, prayer is so powerful and must be the priority of every believer especially in this hour. Today, however, I'm just spending time in thanksgiving and praise.....no intercession, no petitions, no asking......................just thanking Him for who He is and for the victory in all! Thanksgiving. Gratitude. Acknowledging His faithfulness. Oh that He would hear our heart of thanksgiving and praise continually. Today I'm rehearsing all the blessings I am so thankful to Him for.........and as I remember, my faith in Him is fortified. My joy abounds!

"I will give thanks to Your Name,
for You have worked wonders with perfect faithfulness."

Today let's bless the Lord as David says in Psalm 103 ,
and FORGET NOT all His benefits!
"Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy Name.
Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget none of His benefits;
who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases;
who redeems your life from the pit;
who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion,
