Journal Entry by Sara Gebran

S – Psalms 52:9 (NLT)
“I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done.  I will trust in your Good Name in the presence of your faithful people.”

O – Observation
As I was reading this passage of scripture I found myself stopping and rereading it over and over again,  why is it that in the presence of his faithful people that I need to trust in his good name?   Is it because I can be easily be distracted by what is going on in my life and the lives of people around me that I forget to trust in his good name? or is it to keep me reminded on who I should be trusting in? or is it to encourage myself and other brothers and sisters because he has done it all by dying on the cross to save us?  So what do I have to fear?

A – Application  
The Lord has done great things for me, he sacrificed his life for me, there is nothing more he can do, because He is Good I will praise him forever and be thankful, I need to remind myself that he is the only one that can be trusted for his word is true!! I need to encourage others around me about His Good Name.  

P – Prayer
Lord Jesus thank you for all you have done! I will praise you forever, help me to trust in you and your word daily when my heart is overwhelmed, teach me Lord to lean on you more and more I pray.  Amen.
