go into His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and His faithfulness continues to each generation." (Psalm 100:4-5 NLT)
Our lives may be full of change and turmoil. Sometimes we need to stop and take in the big picture, to look back at where we have been, to view the great span of our history with this Shepherd who will not abandon the sheep. [In Psalm 100] the psalmist says God is good. Instead of entering God’s courts in fear of judgment, we may enter singing about God’s faithfulness and find ourselves welcomed home as beloved children, sisters and brothers of Jesus Christ.
