Wednesday in the Word

Psalm 22:22
I will declare your name to my brothers;
in the congregation I will praise you.

As we say at my church, "God is good, all the time." And I will praise Him...all the time. I will praise Him in the good times..and in the bad. I will praise Him in times of feasting...and in times of famine. I will praise Him...even when I can't find my voice. I will praise Him, because He is good...and good to me. He has my best interest at heart. His ways are perfect...and when I follow them, follow His will for me, my ways are perfected. Not perfect. This will never be anything I could understand as long as I am here on this earth. But walking with God means that as I go, I am being "perfected". Made in His image. Becoming more and more Christ-like as I walk beside Him...listen to His still small voice...answer to His call. And when I have the opportunity, I WILL declare your name...and I WILL praise You. For you are GOOD, and Your love endures FOREVER.

Michelle, I know you like my pie picture, but it doesn't speak to me nearly as much as this bowl of persimmons! I could look at it all day long!!!

I'm meditating on Psalm 84 this week. God IS good indeed!

"God is good, all the time." Love that. And I need to remember it...all the time.

Hi Michelle, thank you for visiting my blog. I absolutely love persimmons. You're lucky to live in an area of the country where they flourish. I live in Zone 6, which I think is slightly beyond their hardiness zone. I will have to do a bit of more research.

I've never had them with lime and honey before...will have to give it a go!
