I have a confession to make. Maybe it’s not really even a confession seeing as it’s something I would tell anyone without hesitation when asked. Shane & Shane is my favorite band. Tyler loves them too. Seriously. We are like a mini Shane & Shane fan club.
My wonderful husband sent me a little reminder of how good God is this afternoon. He emailed me the Shanes’ song, Psalm 145. It’s one of our favorite songs. When we have our spontaneous worship times at home we often sing this song. And honestly, it’s just a good reminder that we serve a God who is incredibly patient with us and gracious to us. In our weakness he is strong. When I’m frustrated or angry or just plain not walking with him, he is forgiving. And he loves me. He loves us so much.
I think the little tag bridge thing at the end of the song sums it up well:
“Lord you are gracious, you are slow to anger, abounding in love, you are good to all.”
That is just some truth there. The corresponding verses are Psalm 145:8-9, “The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.”
Let this be an encouragement to you today.
