BLESS the LORD (40 REAL Days)


Wow…it’s Day 7! I know for those who blog on a regular basis, seven days in a row really isn’t a big deal. But my writing has been SO sporadic that just three days in a row is a miracle…and 40, well, that’s probably just insane – but, I’m committed to see this through! So today, I will celebrate those seven days, and praise God – giving Him the glory that He so richly deserves!

I encourage you to take some time to just worship Him. Meditate on the psalms and lift up your voice, in prayer and in song, to the God of Heaven and earth!!

Psalm 103

My soul, praise Yahweh, 
and all that is within me, praise His holy name.

My soul, praise the Lord,
 and do not forget all His benefits.

He forgives all your sin; 
He heals all your diseases.

He redeems your life from the Pit; 
He crowns you with faithful love and compassion.

He satisfies you with goodness; 
your youth is renewed like the eagle.

The Lord executes acts of righteousness
 and justice for all the oppressed.

He revealed His ways to Moses, 
His deeds to the people of Israel.

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
 slow to anger and rich in faithful love.

He will not always accuse us
 or be angry forever.

He has not dealt with us as our sins deserve
 or repaid us according to our offenses.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
 so great is His faithful love
toward those who fear Him.

As far as the east is from the west,
 so far has He removed 
our transgressions from us.

As a father has compassion on his children, 
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.

For He knows what we are made of,
 remembering that we are dust.

As for man, his days are like grass—
he blooms like a flower of the field; when the wind passes over it, it vanishes,
 and its place is no longer known. But from eternity to eternity 
the Lord’s faithful love is toward those who fear Him,
 and His righteousness toward the grandchildren of those who keep His covenant,
 who remember to observe His precepts.

The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
 and His kingdom rules over all.

Praise the Lord, 
all His angels of great strength,
 who do His word, 
obedient to His command.

Praise the Lord, all His armies,
 His servants who do His will.

Praise the Lord, all His works 
in all the places where He rules.
 My soul, praise Yahweh!
