Glorify the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion! For he has strengthened the bars of your gates and blessed your children within your walls. He sends peace across your nation and satisfies your hunger with the finest wheat. He sends his orders to the world -- how swiftly his word flies! Psalm 147: 12-14 NLT

What has God done for me?
God has answered my prayers -- specifically, God took away my anger when it felt like it would overwhelm me. God has turned what seemed like a bad thing into something good -- what was a shameful secret is now in the open. God has provided for our family in terms of what we need. God has provided a loving family, friends and church members to support us and journey with us. God is so good!
