His love endures forever

A psalm of thanksgiving and praise in the midst of struggle (very loosely based on Psalm 118).

By Bayta Schwarz

"Written when my birthday and social distancing coincided."

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

    His love endures forever.

 

When I’m forced to stay at home on a beautiful spring day, I am thankful that green has just started to appear on the bushes and trees outside my window. What a wonderful reminder of seasons changing, and of new life appearing out of what looked dead.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

    His love endures forever.

 

When I’m away from family and friends, and not able to celebrate with them in person, I am thankful for technology that allows us to connect from a distance. I am beyond thankful for the many lives I’ve had the privilege of connecting with. What a joy, a blessing, and an encouragement every person is. What a gift to have so many people I miss being around! We will be back to fun places around Berlin!

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

    His love endures forever.

 

When fear and sadness and loss seem to take over, I am thankful I can be real with You. Your throne is a throne of grace and you invite me to come as I am. I am thankful you promise to be with me. I am thankful you are still God, and all this is not a surprise to you.

You are my God, and I will praise you;

    you are my God, and I will exalt you.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

    His love endures forever.
