Bless His Name

Psalm 103:1-4

King David learned the powerful habit of telling himself the truth. "Bless the Lord, O my soul." That's within me, bless His holy name." That's a habit worth practicing. Train your soul to bless God. And how do you do that? By not forgetting his benefits. Whatever might be going wrong in your life, whatever might be a disappointment, even a serious illness or death, does not affect God's eternal blessing on you as His child. He has redeemed your life from destruction, and He crowns you with loving kindness, which means grace and mercy. He pours out His tenderness. He heals all your diseases, not necessarily in time, but in eternity. And He forgives all your iniquities. Don't ever forget His benefits:forgiveness, absolute perfection in heaven , freedom from all sickness and death, abundant mercy, and everything your need. May everything that is in you bless His holy name!
Jon MacArthur

Thanks Becky... what a great reminder, maybe a new years goal. I so enjoy my friendship with your mom. We've become prayer partners. I do pray for you all often.
