Mondays and trusting God Psalm 40: 3,4

He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God.  Many will see what He has done and be amazed.  They will put their trust in God.  Oh the joys of those who trust the Lord who have no confidence in the proud or in those who worship idols.   Psalm 40: 3,4

A new year has so much potential for newness. We have an opportunity to be a better person, a better servant, a better giver and a better lover of others.  We can say with the Psalmist when he speaks of God giving him a new song, we have a new song tool.   We can experience a new year full of praise and amazement because God’s love and grace cleanses and renews us. Joy! 

Oh, but there is a prerequisite to receiving this newness and joy and it is not simply turning our calendars to a new year.  We must put our trust in the Lord.

Oh the joys of those who trust the Lord.  Psalm 40: 4a

TRUST THE LORD!  Let’s vow this new year to order our lives through the lens of trusting God and not worldly values.  And our reward?

We will be filled with joyous songs of praise.

Others will see our joy and put their trust in God.

Joy!  Joy!  Joy!

seeking with you to trust God and sing a new song of joy, susie
