Enduring Thankfulness

Who can understand 
  the workings 
  of God's simultaneous 
judgment and mercy 
severity and kindness? 

Hearts softened 
  by pain 
  often 
rest in heightened 
 awe of God- 
being encouraged 
and enhanced with 
enduring thankfulness. 
- Nancy Spiegelberg

The LORD is my strength, 
my shield from every danger. 
I trust in him with all my heart. 
He helps me, 
and my heart is filled with joy. 
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. 
Psalm 28:7 
New Living Translation
