I've been mediating on Psalm 16 for two weeks or so. A portion of it reads:
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”
5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
Is it possible to say that all the good things I have emanate from God?
Think about the implications of that statement... tasting a strawberry, smelling a flower, the sun on my face, a walk with my dog, a conversation with a friend, singing a worship song, being with my wife... all these good things emanate from a loving God who places them before my path.
Believing this would, I expect, give me a spirit of ongoing and enduring thankfulness, something that I often lack.
Something to think about.
Grace & Peace,
