IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
You may see and experience pain and destruction, but that will not last. A day is coming where nothing but praise fills my ears—songs of worship coming from you and everyone around you. Those who reject me will finally recognize what is true about me. My enemies will bow before me. So take time today to practice what a life of praise looks and sounds like.
I am a refuge for the poor. I provide safety for those in distress, and I silence the noise of adversaries. Even better for you, I will prepare a feast for all. The days of torment will end, and I will provide the relief everyone longs for. I will destroy death—there will be no more pain or dying. I will wipe away tears and bring healing and hope to those who have felt shame in their lives. The proud will be brought low and the humble raised. So sing praise to me and look forward to this day that will be yours forever.
Thank God for who he is, what he has done, and what he is yet to do. Make a list of 5+ things you are thankful for that God has done.
