Give me a word, Lord: PRAISE THE LORD, OH MY SOUL

Psalm. 103:20-22 Praise the Lord, you angels, you mighty ones who carry out his plans, listening for each of his commands. Yes, praise the Lord, you armies of angels  who serve him and do his will! Praise the Lord, everything he has created, everything in all his kingdom. Let all that I am praise the Lord.

I reflect back on the past few weeks, and I recall of the whining and bickering and complaining I have done in my conversations with God. Oh yes, I whine sometimes. I’m human, and I know that my God wants an intimate relationship with me which means He wants all the thorns too…not just the roses. I’m so very thankful that I have a heavenly Father who cares about every single aspect of my life. I see His loving hands in even the littlest details, and I feel His loving arms carrying me through those difficult days when I seem to complain more than praise. I don’t want to be a negative Nelly, a whiny Wendy, or a plain old stick in the mud, and because of my relationship with my heavenly Daddy, praise God, I am not. For you see, that awesome heavenly Daddy of mine listens as a complain, but then He gently turns my frown upside down as He reassures me that He is in control. I’ve nothing to fear or fret. I’m in the hands of the Creator of the Universe! I want to praise God with all of my being!

A song is in my heart today, and I’d like to share it with you. Bless the Lord, Oh My Soul, lyrics by Matt Redman and Steve Angrisano. Read these words and let them settle in your heart this morning.

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

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

You’re rich in love
And You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

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

Bless You Lord

And on that day
When my strength is failing
The end draws near
And my time has come
Still my soul will
Sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years
And then forevermore
Forevermore

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

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
Yes I’ll worship Your Holy name
I’ll worship Your Holy name

Today and everyday may we remember to bless and praise our Savior! He deserves our humble adoration and absolute praise. He is worthy! Let us praise Him today!
