Psalm 118:29

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever. – Psalm 118:29

Dear Lord,

This is the verse we said at the end of every meal in my parental home growing up.  I did not know at the time where it came from.  It came from several of your psalms.  It was always the great leveler in my life.  Your love endures forever.  When I was being a stinker, I’d remember, “Your love endures forever.”  When I felt shame I’d think, “Your love endures forever.”  When I was angry with a sibling or my parents I’d be reminded, “Your love endures forever.”  When I feared losing my parents’ affection I’d muse, “Yourove endures forever.”  You leveled out every peak and valley in my life with your love.  Level out today with the same thoughts, “Your love endures forever.”  Help me live a thankful and confident life, toted by your love.
