For He is Good

Once again, my timing is not HIS timing; for the Lord's timing is perfect. I am praising God for how he provides.

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures forever! ~Psalms 136:1

Psalms 138
1 I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart;
before the "gods" I will sing your praise.

2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
and will praise your name
for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,
for you have so exalted your solemn decree
that it surpasses your fame.

3 When I called, you answered me;
you greatly emboldened me.

4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, LORD,
when they hear what you have decreed.

5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD,
for the glory of the LORD is great.

6 Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly,
but he takes notice of the proud from afar.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
with your right hand you save me.

8 The LORD will vindicate me;
your love, LORD, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.

1 things to add:

Verse 3 speaks to me the most, "When I called, you answered me."

So comforting to know that He won't leave you {& me} hangin'.
