YAMGT
Psalm 84:11 “No good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly.”


I love acrostics. Building a message from them can be so much fun. And it really takes much of the work out of it for me. Its as if the points are already provided...I just have to fill in the blanks.

YAMGT. Have you figured it out yet? Its forever engraved in my heart and on the inside of my husband’s wedding band, along with the reference of Ps. 84:11. And I tell him often: You Are My Good Thing.

When I met Mark, it didn’t take long for me to know that he was God’s gift to me. We were brought together at the right time, in the right place, for the right season of life.

After I lost my first husband to cancer, I learned some things about myself that proved to be potentially serious weaknesses. In my first two years as a single mom, I began making a list of those weaknesses, praying the Lord would take care of me…that “IF” He chose to bring someone into our life, He would use my “list” in putting it all together.

Mark is my list. And then some. He is truly my good thing. The gift God knew I needed.

But you know, every now and then, I need to look at my list again. When things get crazy. When he’s been out of town. When I’m irritated because he didn’t do something. Or irritated about what he did. Or simply because I need to be reminded of what a Good Thing he truly is.

I challenge you today to make a list yourself. List all the things you love about your husband. You might have to dig a little, especially if you are in a critical frame of mind. But I can promise you, once you start, your list will grow. And ask God, who gives us these good gifts, to help you. Believe me, that’s a prayer that won’t go unanswered.

Then, before you’ve run out of paper, leave him a note that says, “ YAMGT.” Let me know what happens!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Kim, this is absolutely delightful. I've sent you an email about using it in the February Issue. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction (even if you pointed way back in October). Love, Deb (Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine)
