Psalm 136- Read the entire Psalm before reading/after reading this Reflections article.
 
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever....to him alone who does great wonders, His steadfast love endures forever.
 
May is traditionally known as one of the busiest months for families. Perhaps only the Thanksgiving through New Year's time frame is busier; perhaps.
 
Just this week in the Kuhlhorst household we have celebrated red letter days. Michael arrived home on Wednesday having finished his junior year of college - 
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!
 
Maryneal turned 18 on Thursday -  O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!
 
Mother's Day was celebrated on Sunday - O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!
 
Michael turns 21 on Friday - O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!
 
Later in May, Maryneal will graduate from Lambert High School - O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!
 
This month of May is packed full of events, celebrations, and rituals that become fuller when we  offer God thanks and praise for God's steadfast love-hesed- endures forever.
 
Psalm 136 functions like a faith statement in which the Psalmist identifies many of God's mighty acts and gives thanks for each. The message is that our lives are full of wonder, grace, and God's creative acts of redemption.
 
Take a moment to review your calendar and notice what happens when you say after each event, celebration or ritual: O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!
 
Let your inner Psalmist guide your gratitude as you acknowledge the abundance of blessings God has bestowed upon you.
 
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!

Prayer for Today

We give you thanks and praise for all your mighty works, 
O God. Keep our minds thankful and our hearts hopeful, so that in all things, we will see you working for good in those who love you. Amen.
