Chapter-a-Day Psalm 126

Do it again, Daddy! And now, God, do it again— bring rains to our drought-stricken lives So those who planted their crops in despair will shout hurrahs at the harvest, So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing. Psalm 126:4-6 (MSG)

On Sunday night we spent a lazy evening enjoying dinner and a visit from our friends. At one point in the evening the guys were wrestling around on the living room floor. I held my three-year-old playmate up by his ankles and dangled his head in the scruff of his daddy's neck. This illicited joyful laughter from my dangling friend, and when I lowered him back to the floor he immediately screamed, "Do it AGAIN!" So, we did it again...several times!

It's good to look back and remember what God has done. I believe it's important to recall specific instances when God answered our prayers, times when He gave us our heart's desire, and moments in our lives when blessings unlooked for and undeserved rained down upon us.

It reminds us that our Dad in heaven likes to bless His chidren. It gives us faith to say, "Do it again!"

1-3 It seemed like a dream, too good to be true, when God........

The very first statement struck me this morning. In general I have a very blessed life. Sure, my family has struggles and roadbumps, but overall God has tremendously blessed us. It really is a dream that I have the job I do, the family I do, the friends I do. When God.... Why is that so hard for me to believe? God wants to supply our needs. I just need to celebrate that more.
