I'm encouraged

A few weeks ago the verse that I was meditating on was, Daniel 9:18... "We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy."

I have been thinking about this quite a bit. Its easy for me to get a bit prideful and self-righteous at times and more and more I am humbled by the grace God has given me. God has so much mercy and my righteousness pales in comparison.

I am encouraged to be part of a family that deals with the matters of our hearts. 
I am encouraged to be part of a church that is pursuing the kingdom of God. 
I am encouraged to have a husband who is fun and loving. 
I am encouraged to meet with people who are becoming a part of Visio Dei's community. 
I am encouraged to know that none of this is possible with out the loving creator who allows me to be a part of any of these things. 

Have you been encouraged recently?
