Bless the Lord O My Soul

Bless the Lord, O my soul; 
and all that is deepest within me, 
bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, 
and remember every act of goodness--
He forgives every one of all your iniquities, 
He heals each one of all your diseases,
He redeems your life from the pit and corruption, 
He beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you 
with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
He satisfies your necessities and desires 
at your personal age and situation with good 
so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's--
strong, overcoming, soaring!
Psalm 103
So many mornings, and definitely this morning,
 I have to speak to my soul.
It is often still bouncing off the circumstances of yesterday.
It feels more "pinball-ish" than purposeful.
And so I say to my soul:
"Be still, and bless the Lord.
Remember everything He has done for you!"
He forgives all my sins.
He heals each one of my diseases.
He redeems my life.
His mercy makes me beautiful.
Whatever my age, 
He satisfies me with good
so that my youth is renewed
and I am strong, overcoming.

"Bless the Lord, O my soul.
You will soar with purpose today.
You will line up with His goodness
and walk in trust and confidence.
That deepest part of me
will bless the Lord."
