Bite of Bread: God Loves You Psalm 103

Psalm 103-3

“Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. 

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and don’t forget His benefits–who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 

who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.” Psalm 103:1-5

Who wouldn’t want to love and be loved by a God like that?

Yet sometimes, depending on our circumstances, or whether or not we had a loving father, or  if we’re stuck in Old Testament Law and legalism rather than New Testament grace, we doubt God’s goodness and His love.

But our lives change when we know beyond knowing–bad circumstances or good, answered prayers or not, sunshine or clouds– we know that God is loving and kind, compassionate and forgiving.

In my life, learning to worship God throughout my day opened up my heart to receiving His love.

There are many ways to worship God: Music, dance, prayers, obedience, and reading psalms of praise out loud. [I recently got the “I (heart) Radio” app which allows me to play K-Love on my phone while I’m getting ready in the morning. It’s awesome to worship while I’m getting ready for my day (except it takes me twice as long because I’m dancing in the bathroom!)]

But I digress. . .

This week we’ll strengthen our worship muscles with Psalm 103. I want to invite you to read these verses out loud and read them through out the day. Maybe even lift your hands as you read or bow down on your knees.

 

I pray that as we read these verse, and chew on them all day, they begin to sink down into our souls. His love heals us.

So. . . gather your journal and pen, Bible and cup of joe or tea. Light a candle or sit where you can see the sunrise. I’m chewing on these verses with you, and you can join me on Periscope @wordsbyandylee at 9:00 EST. I’m also posting some of those videos on our Facebook Fellowship page (Andy Lee Author).
