one thousand gifts {#946-980}

“Satisfy us in the morning with Your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”

{Psalm 90:14}

I’ve noticed that I’m more prone to notice grace-gifts in the morning.
He never fails to satisfy me in the morning with His steadfast love…and it always continues throughout the whole day.
His love never fails, never wavers, never gives up on me…and He shows me how in a thousand different ways.
THAT causes me to rejoice and be glad!
