A Place of Abundance

David shared the following passage with me tonight. It was part of his reading last night and really struck him as describing our life over recent years and where we are now. He read it to me without telling me why, and it came across the same way to me. We are so grateful for the blessings of the present and the protection through the past!

From Psalm 66:

8 Praise our God, O peoples,
let the sound of his praise be heard;

9 he has preserved our lives
and kept our feet from slipping.

10 For you, O God, tested us;
you refined us like silver.

11 You brought us into prison
and laid burdens on our backs.

12 You let men ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance.
