I am so than thankful to be a child of God, and to have a Father that is so merciful. His abounding love is everlasting , and the power of His Word is immeasurable!
Psalms is one of my favorite books and I was so excited when we landed there! I just knew the words for my blog would just flow, but it somehow seems difficult to express my feelings about it. I've come to a conclusion that His Word sometimes just speaks for itself, and nothing I could ever say about it would or could change the message, and why would I even try?
I know we all gain a little different perspective when we read His Word, and mine for this day is..."if it's not broken, don't try to fix it"!
No matter what we say about His Word, the most important thing is how it effects us deep in our soul, and how His Word clings to our heart. It is the action we will take, how we will serve and love one another as He has loved us.
The word I read today make me want to sing the song..
Praise the Lord My Soul....
1. Praise the Lord, my soul, let fire and rain give praise to Him. Give praise to Him who is merciful, slow to judge.
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
New King James Version (NKJV)
Thankfulness and Prayer3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy,5 for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; 7 just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace. 8 For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.
9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, 10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
