Thank you for being my Rock

Thank you , Lord. You are so good. All the time, in every situation, you have our best at heart. Your love motivates you to move mountains and change cultures so that more people can search you and find you. Thank you for your protection from this virus . Thank you for our homes, schools, friends, church, and virtual possibilities that much of the world can't access. Thank you for healthcare professionals and modern medicine. We are so fortunate. So blessed. And so easily frustrated. Forgive me for my selfishness. I want to revel in your goodness and in the faith that you make all things whole. You bring good out of a messy world and glory from disaster. I praise you and trust you. You are my Rock . "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."- -Psalm 19:14
