Bless The Lord, O My Soul ~ Meditation…

 

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who  forgives all your iniquity, who  heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who  crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who  satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known his  ways to Moses, his  acts to the people of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he  keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us  according to our sins, nor repay us according to our 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  remove our transgressions from us. As  a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion  to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he  remembers that we are dust.

As for man, his days are like  grass; he flourishes like  a flower of the field; for  the wind passes over it, and  it is gone, and  its place knows it no more.But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on  those who fear him, and his righteousness to  children’s children, to those who  keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments. The Lord has  established his throne in the heavens, and his  kingdom rules over all.

Bless the Lord, O you  his angels, you  mighty ones who  do his word, obeying the voice of his word! Bless the Lord, all his  hosts, his  ministers, who do his will! Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!”

~ Psalm 103
