“Many are asking, “Who can show us anything good?”
Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.
You have filled my heart with greater joy
than when their grain
and new wine abound.
I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O Lord,
make me dwell in safety.”

Lord God, You are good. When we look for something “good” in this world it dims in light of Your grace and mercy. You have given us peace in our hearts by turning Your face towards us–we have seen You face to face through Your Son Jesus Christ our Lord who obediently became the sacrifice for our sins. There are no greater riches than the freedom from sin and guilt found in Your forgiveness. Help us to live this day in joyful response to all of Your good gifts to us. For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
