Psalm 145

Psalm 145:1-9
{read and let it soak in on this Friday}

 1 I will exalt you, my God the King;
   I will praise your name for ever and ever.
2 Every day I will praise you
   and extol your name for ever and ever. 
 3 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
   his greatness no one can fathom.

4 One generation commends your works to another;
   they tell of your mighty acts.
5 They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
   and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
6 They tell of the power of your awesome works—
   and I will proclaim your great deeds.
7 They celebrate your abundant goodness
   and joyfully sing of your righteousness. 

 8 The LORD is gracious and compassionate,
   slow to anger and rich in love. 

 9 The LORD is good to all;
   he has compassion on all he has made.

I love the line in verse 8 - "The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love." That word picture strikes me every time. That he is RICH in love. He is gracious and compassionate. That's his character.

Whatever struggles, hardships, happy things, sad things - rely on that picture of his character!!!

Happy Weekend! We have a relaxing one ahead and a wonderful baby shower on Sunday. So blessed! God is working - he is good - I trust his character today, will you join me? Bless you!
