because He has treated me generously.
On the basis of God's track record, the writer gives God the benefit of the doubt and tells him, "I trust in your unfailing love."

Last night on the way home I listened to another Podcast of Joyce Meyers. Can't remember the topic, but she was just what I needed to hear. I told my wife that I once again felt that I've been touched with an answer. A push to take care of a certain issue I've been fighting with. Today I listened to Pastor John McDonald's Podcast as he spoke on the feeling of discouragement. Great topic, and again just what I needed to hear.
As I was walking into work listening in, John continued his talk. He turn the subject to his dad. At that moment I started to think of my dad who has since passed and how hard it was for him raising a family of six. I don't remember him ever acting discouraged. Just as I started to talk to him in my mind. I glanced down to find another penny. My dad would never bypass a coin on the ground. I just felt once again it was a small sign from above. That what I am hearing in the two Podcasts are not only answers but encouragement from above. I know He can, and will use anyone He chooses to advance His glory and kingdom. To say the least it scares me to think he might use me too. I looked up "discouragement" in the Concordance and turned to 1 CH 22: 13. David talking to his son Solomon "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged." If Solomon could find peace in those words with the giant task of building a temple in his future; I think I should take them to heart too.
All I have to do is pay some bills (discouragement.)
