Is All Good from God?

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,
Brad Swope
