Psalms 92

My mom receives a daily email with a verse and Bible study for the day. She forwarded on the email to me from November 22 - Ella's birth day. As I wasn't checking email in the hospital, I didn't receive her message until we were home and adjusting to our new (wonderful) life.

I love how God knows exactly what encouragement we need, even before we are discouraged. It is amazing how the same scripture will touch you in different ways at various points in your life.

The verse focused on in the November 22 email was from Psalms 92 and it said "It is good to give thanks to the declare Your loving kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night." I read this beautiful piece of scripture after a very long night and an exhausting morning - and I'm grateful for the reminder to celebrate those times, and always cherish my blessing of Ella. 

As my friend said to me yesterday, "The nights are long, but the years are quick." With the Lord's strength, I will praise Him in the mornings and the late night hours as I watch my Ella grow.   

What scripture touches your heart and encourages you as a mom?
