Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever. - Psalm 107:1

Have you ever felt alone - that no one loved you or cared about you?

I felt that way several years ago after my divorce. I had family and friends that loved and cared for me but there was something missing.

I told a friend how I was feeling and he told me to go to my Bible and instead of searching for a verse - let the book open where it wants. Psalm 107 was the book and chapter - I read verse one and that was it! When I did eventually read the whole chapter - every verse applied.

I did not realize I had pushed aside my faith in the Lord's unfailing love. I was not alone, He was always and had always been with me and watching over me.

When I accepted this then I was able to go back to being me, pretty good at my job, enjoying life with a bit of sassiness, and that my glass is always more than half full!

Good and gracious God, thank you for your constant presence and assurance in my life, yesterday, today, and forever. Amen
