Thanks Living: Take Notice!

But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. Psalm 5:11 (NKJV) 
But let those who run to You for safety be glad they did; let them break out in joyful song. May You keep them safe—their love for You resounding in their hearts. Psalm 5:11 (VOICE)
Rejoice: to brighten up
Trust: have hope, make refuge, confide in
Ever: continuance, duration
Shout for joy: (cause to) sing (aloud, for joy, out), triumph
Defend: to entwine as a screen; to fence in, protect, hedge in
Love: beloved like, friend
Name: by implication honor, authority, character
Joyful: jubilant, rejoice, triumph

Take Notice! 
Notice where my trust is to be placed—in You (God Almighty). 
Notice why I am to shout for joy—because God protects me.
Notice how long I'm to shout—continually (because God is faithful).
Notice who I am to love—God because of his authority, character, simply because of who God is. 
Notice the reason for my joy—God Himself. 

Thanks Living is all based and centered on God Himself. No matter my circumstances. No matter my questions. No matter if I understand or not. It all is dependent on God, who is faithful, unchanging, loving, and in complete control. 

Thanks Living—Take Notice
