The Weekend Brew: Bless The Lord!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
(Psalm 103:1-5)

Sometimes, I need to stir up my Spirit Man to bless the Lord.  I wish I could say it was always easy to give Him the praise and adoration that He is worthy of.  But sometimes, life’s circumstances cloud my perspective.  But I am learning the power of praise and thanksgiving, and the power of giving Him honor — no matter what.  To reflect on the things He’s already done, gives me strength to look forward to the things that I am still waiting for answers for.  I never want to forgot where I came from, or what He’s done for me.  He is good, all the time, and so deserving of my praise.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!

    Barbie, the only way I am able to view your blog is through a different browser.  Google Chrome doesn’t work as the screen turns blue.  I think it might be  your music player but not sure.

    Anyway, I am not giving up on you friend.  You always have wonderful insights and a beautiful writing style.
     
    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

  2. This is the scripture I say almost daily, and have encouraged my daughter to memorize.  What better benefits could we ask for?  In a day and age when most are harping on health insurance, I say the Lord has the best plan of them all!

      Yay for no more blue screens. Sad that it was my lovely music player that was interferring, but hopefully my designer/music man will be able to figure that out. Sing away girl!

    what a beautiful passage to share!

  10. I just discovered your blog and this link up through Scripture and a Snapshot – love it here! All the little coffee rings are precious, and especially appropriate as I sip my morning coffee and read. So glad to know you now. Also, I know what you mean about circumstances clouding prayer. Right now, I’m focusing on thanking God for my troubles as an antidote to anxiety, instead of just asking for relief. To be sure, I’m asking for relief, too, but the thanksgiving for everything is an important part that I forget.

    Yes there is real power in praise and thanksgiving. i have to learn to be consistent in praising God because sometimes I am full of praise and then I forget for days at a time!
