Thou art gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and of great mercy, Psalm 145:8(KJV) and hast told me that thou dost not afflict willingly or grieve the children of men, but, though thou cause grief, yet thou wilt have compassion according to the multitude of thy mercies. Lamentations 3:32-33(KJV)

Thou takest pleasure in them that fear thee, in them that hope in thy mercy. Psalm 147:11(KJV)

For the many instances of his goodness.

The goodness of his providence relating to my body and the life that now is; and this,
