Organizing the Inside – Day 112 Bless The Lord Oh My Soul

1Bless 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 satisfies thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. ~Psalm 103:1-5

God is so wonderful!
Today I thought about, all that He has done for my family and me throughout all of 2011.  I thought about all the times He stood Lord over His word and saw to it that His promises were real to each of us. In conflict and in frustration, God’s faithfulness endured. When situation after situation seemed impossible to overcome, we knew it was His mighty hand that brought us out. Where I lacked wisdom or understanding He opened the truth of His word to me, and activated the power of His love in my heart.

My inner most being, rejoices in His goodness.
There are days when I find it hard to articulate the overwhelming sense of gratitude in my soul. I know that my intellect cannot comprehend God’s goodness or His grace. I consider the works of His hands, and all the progress that He has allowed me to experience on this journey; in my weakness He carried me – I know.  There is nothing, not one single thing (I’ve done) that I can point to that would qualify me for such unconditional love. Yet He reminds me that His mercy and forgiveness is always abiding.

God exposed the truth and chased my fears away.
I am in awe of His steadfast faithfulness that caused me to no longer be afraid. I’m learning to embrace the hope and truth and glory that He’s brought to fill my life.  No service could I render to repay all that God has done.  I pray I remain committed to tell Him yes and follow through.  His PERFECT LOVE has driven away my fear;  I’m not worried about tomorrow, neither am I worried about my failures from yesterday.  One day recently I woke up and discovered myself where I believe to be the center of God’s will. Here is where I and determined to always be found.
