Thankful Thursday

I love Psalm 136. One of these Thankful Thursdays I'm going to re-write it, describing the great things he's done for me.

What I love about this Psalm is the repeating "His love endures forever". The "love" here is the Hebrew word "checed", which is more like mercy or favor. How merciful our God is, and how many blessings he showers on us! And it isn't temporary or fickle--it's FOREVER. Not just when I feel it, but all the time. Not when I've earned it, but for eternity.

So I give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever!
