Sunday Blessings

This is a beautiful psalm and a favorite of mine, overflowing with the promise of His everylasting love for us. I pray it blesses each of you this Lord's Day. 

Psalm 103

Praise the LORD, my soul; 
   all my inmost being, praise his holy name. 
Praise the LORD, my soul, 
   and forget not all his benefits— 
who forgives all your sins 
   and heals all your diseases, 
who redeems your life from the pit 
   and crowns you with love and compassion, 
who satisfies your desires with good things 
   so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 The LORD works righteousness 
   and justice for all the oppressed.

 He made known his ways to Moses, 
   his deeds to the people of Israel: 
The LORD is compassionate and gracious, 
   slow to anger, abounding in love. 
He will not always accuse, 
   nor will he harbor his anger forever; 
he does not treat us as our sins deserve 
   or repay us according to our iniquities. 
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, 
   so great is his love for 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 how we are formed, 
   he remembers that we are dust. 
The life of mortals is like grass, 
   they flourish like a flower of the field; 
the wind blows over it and it is gone, 
   and its place remembers it no more. 
But from everlasting to everlasting 
   the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, 
   and his righteousness with their children’s children— 
with those who keep his covenant 
   and remember to obey his precepts.
 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, 
   and his kingdom rules over all.
 Praise the LORD, you his angels, 
   you mighty ones who do his bidding, 
   who obey his word. 
Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, 
   you his servants who do his will. 
Praise the LORD, all his works 
   everywhere in his dominion.
   Praise the LORD, my soul.

Have a lovely afternoon, ladies!

  2. Thank you for sharing this, Elizabeth! This psalm is one of my favorites--so much so that I have it memorized. It always encourages me no matter how many times I've read it before. :)
