Psalm 103

If anyone wonders why I posted Matthew 1, then Matthew 2, and now Psalm 103 --

I am trying to get myself back in the habit of posting on mercyandpercy and if a Bible verse or chapter is all I can manage on any given day, I decided to go with it. As I can, I will be posting other items. If I am the only one who reads MAP postings, so be it. I'm not doing this for readers. I'm doing this to acknowledge God in my life.

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:
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.

Eastern Orthodox have a method of praying the Psalms- literally every Psalm once a week! I have been trying it this week and it has helped my prayer life a lot. But it is a lot of work (20 or so a day).

I will get to see the transformation of Inasmuch- now Jubilee-ministry when I (finally) get to go back in (exactly) 60 days from today. I'll take lots of pics and blog of course.

Good to see you blogging again.
