1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
As soon as I start reading this psalm, the song “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)”* starts beautifully flowing through my mind:
Bless the Lord oh my soul Oh my soul Worship His Holy name Sing like never before Oh my soul I’ll worship Your Holy name
The sun comes up It’s a new day dawning It’s time to sing Your song again Whatever may pass And whatever lies before me Let me be singing When the evening comes…
Prayer: Dear Lord, whatever lies before us today help us to still be singing to you and worshiping you when the evening comes. Like the crepe myrtle where many small blossoms gather together and make a stunningly beautiful flower cluster, help us to exist together in harmony and love. This we ask dear Lord, in Jesus name. Amen
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
In the early morning, I love to sit for a moment and listen to the birds sing, bask in the beauty of nature, and rejoice in God’s goodness. Wishing you moments of beauty and time to rejoice in God’s goodness today.
What in nature or your garden cause you to rejoice and thank God?
Today’s Prayer: Our heavenly Father, we rejoice in your goodness, your forgiveness, and your unconditional love for us. We also rejoice in your gifts of the beauty and wonder of nature, hope for tomorrow, and the unique blessing of each new day. Help us to glorify you by being kind, gentle, and loving in our dealings with each other. Let us glow like the sunshine on the flower petals with your forgiveness and unconditional love. In Jesus name, Amen.
Dear Lord, Thank you for being my light and my salvation. Let your light illuminate my path. Let my faith shine before others like the sunlit petals of the daisy. Open my heart like a blossom and show me the way. In Jesus name. Amen
