Bless the Lord, O My Soul- Giving Thanks Based on Psalm 103-

 7.11.11

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits....

(#1416- 1441)

You, O Lord, have forgiven all my iniquity

and  healed all my diseases, all my spiritual infirmities,

 it has pleased you to redeem my life from the pit

and crown me with your steadfast love and mercy.

How great are your works O Lord!

O my soul, do not forget all his benefits!

Thank you that you O Lord, satisfies my soul,

That your grace is sufficient,

your grace is my all.

You renew my strength, my soul,

just like the eagle's.

Forget not, O my soul!

You, O Father, have worked righteousness and

justice when I was oppressed by my sins.

You have made your ways known to me

through the Scriptures;

Your Word has enlightened my path.

Give thanks , O my soul,

to God for He alone is merciful and gracious

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

Give thanks O my soul,

and do not forget all His benefits!

Give thanks for He will not chide,

nor will he keep his anger forever.

Do not stop praising and giving thanks to Him,

O my soul,

see that the Lord has not dealt with you

according to your sins,

nor repay you according to your iniquities.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

as far as the east is from the west,

so far does He removed your transgressions, O my soul, from you.

Give thanks to God, O my soul,

for He has called you to be his child,

and just as a Father shows compassion to his children

so the Lord has shown compassion to you

because you have feared his name.

Give thanks, O my soul,

to God, who knows your frame

and remembers that you are dust,

and gives you hope,

He reminds you of how short this life is,

and teaches you to fix your eyes on eternity,

on His steadfast love,

a love that never ceases,

that is from everlasting to everlasting

on those who fear him.

Give thanks for His righteousness

is even for my children's children,

for those who keep His covenant

and remember to do his commandments.

The Lord reigns!

Give thanks, O my soul,

to one who is sitting on the throne,

Give thanks to the LORD who has established

his throne in the heavens,

and whose kingdom rules over all.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
