Psalm 77:11-12 I will remember the works of the LORD and call to mind your wonders of old time. I will meditate on all your acts and ponder your mighty deeds.
As a young man, I felt so alone and isolated—so full of self-hatred. God reached out to me through a loving and caring community where I could experience grace, acceptance, and love. The psalmist calls me to ponder and celebrate God’s mighty deeds of healing in my life, in times past and in this present moment. I have never been alone. And as the tears finally come, to wash and clean and make new, I pray, “Thanks be to God.”
