48:11 God’s plans don’t follow our expectations.
48:15 God has been with me since I came into the world and he will stay with me until I leave it.
48:21 God is with us always even when our loved ones and spiritual guides are not. And he always keeps his promises.
Israel gives thanks to God and blesses his grandchildren. All good things come from the Lord, and I don’t praise him nearly enough. He has never left me, and been with me since the beginning of time, yet I don’t give him what he deserves.
Lord, you are my creator, my God, my friend, my Father, my brother, my provider, my lover, my strength, and my refuge. Thank you for all you do. Even when I don’t seem thankful, I am. Amen.
