Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us,
and not we ourselves;
We are His people
and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him,
and bless His name.
For the LORD is good,
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
(Psalm 100, NKJV)
The LORD–YHWH, literally “I AM THAT I AM”–is God, not us. Human history is the stage for Redemption, and I offer my humble thanks that He saw fit to include me in that plan. Baruch HaShem Adonai, HaShem Y’shua Mashiach.

Thank you for that reminder, and Happy Thanksgiving to your family!
How funny, we just read that line of Hebrew today in a picture book! (My son was like, “Daddy knows Hebrew? COOL!” The things that impress a child, right?)
