God is Good

Well, it’s Thanksgiving morning and my truck is in the shop getting a (hopefully) minor problem fixed. Did I mention I’m 2800 miles from home? And not scheduled to be home for another month?

Pretty normal life for a trucker. So, what to do? I could feel sorry for myself that I always miss the events at home. I could salve the pain of loneliness in any of several unsavory ways. Or I can rejoice in the things I do have and more importantly, in the God who provides and comforts.

I have a wife that loves me and eagerly awaits my return. But it wasn’t always so. There was a time she despised and even hated me. Then God healed me, and her, and us.

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good,  for his steadfast love endures forever.

I have a career that is interesting and that I’m very good at. But it wasn’t always so. There was a time I hated my job… and my life. And then a time when I had no job… and seemingly no life. Then God led me (kicking and screaming) into trucking.

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good,  for his steadfast love endures forever.

I have 2 sons (and a daughter in law… and granddaughter) who still like to hang around with their old man. But it should have been different. They grew up with a dad who was volatile and erratic. Then God changed me and settled me.

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good,  for his steadfast love endures forever.

No matter what is going on in your life this Thanksgiving day, God is working. You may not see it, maybe because you’re not looking. But He’s there, working and waiting for you to come to Him and kneel before Him and love Him as He has always loved you.

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good,  for his steadfast love endures forever.

It is he who remembered us in our low estate, for his steadfast love endures forever;

and rescued us from our foes, for his steadfast love endures forever;

he who gives food to all flesh, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1‭, ‬23‭-‬26 ESV
