Every once in a while when I’m reading something a sentence or couple of words really grab my attention. I’ll typically stop dead in my tracks and re-read the section several times and ponder the impact I’m feeling.
This can happen when I’m reading a book, a devotion, or more frequently when I’m reading a Bible passage.
Today, while reading Psalm 147 I got to the end of verse 7, the last few words “… for You are good to me.”.
Yesterday and to a lesser extent this morning I’ve been in a bit of a funk. When I read this and reflected on how good God has been to me over the years it really lifted me up and raised my spirits. I felt significantly better after reading those 6 simple words.
God, you are good to me.
