Ps. 103:1-5 (NAS) Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the the pit; Who crowns you with loving kindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Hope, faith, belief, love; it's a choose, it's a prayer. It doesn't alway seem to line-up with our reality. It isn't always easy to choose to believe, have hope and faith, to love. I pray we all continue to persevere, and have endurance, knowing that the testing of our faith produces patients. As in James 1:2, ...count it all joy.... And when you think you can't, tell yourself, "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me; Bless His Holy Name!" Praise God! I'm redeemed and forgiven!
