Unleashed, To Give You Thanks, Lord

Here’s an interesting thought from Todd Parsons:

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever, Ps.19:9a.

If i consider my life to be as a room, and that which is in the center of the room gets the first/center of my attention, what is in the center of the room? What is its effect on my soul?

O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good: for His mercy endures for ever, Ps.107:1.

I have found my heart to not easily respond to that verse and yet, as i gave slow pondering to that and not passed it by, i know it is true and am troubled at my lack of response... Then this i reckon, that i have something else in the center of my room that brings into question the goodness of the LORD...

The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple, Ps.19:7b.

The LORD is good!... He can be none other or He would not be who He is... If the LORD were not good then He'd be in the same category as Satan or Satan would be the one that is good, YUCK... Thank God, it is not that way. The LORD is good and His mercy endures for ever; we can give Him thanks. Letting the LORD's testimonies be sure in me, having first place, or having center stage in my life gives to my heart that which is clean, washing away that which has latched onto my soul to keep me from giving thanks, where thanks is due... We can give glory to the LORD with Him first in us...

Of Great Love, we are, tjp
