Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all 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 eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)
That is what I will now do. What will you now do? I will give all my praise and thanks to you. With all my heart and soul and entire being I will pour out praise and thanks and worship to you. With will gratitude, and not halfhearted words, I give you thanks and praise and worship for who you are and what you have done for me. What have I done for you? Who am I to you? You are my redeemer. You redeemed my life from the pit. You pulled my life out of the muck and mire. You rescued me from a life without you. You are my healer. You have healed me of my diseases. You revived, refreshed, restored, and healed my bruised and battered and broken life. Now, I can walk and not grow weary. Now, I can run and not faint. Now, I can soar with you like an eagle. You have given me your power and strength with which I can and will love and follow and serve you. You are my Heavenly Father. You have made me to be your child. You have adopted me into your family. You have made me to be your very own. You have crowned my life with you love and compassion. You are my provider. You have both given and granted to me the desires of my heart. What is the greatest desire of your heart? It is the greatest desire of my heart to know and love and follow and serve you with all that is within me. I could not want or ask for anything better. But you have also given me far more than I could have ever asked for, dreamed of, or even imagined. The best of which is, one day I will come to live forever in heaven with you. Yes, you will. In the meantime, I will remember you for who are and what you have done for me by giving to you all my thanks and praise and worship. That will be very good. Thank you, Lord! Praise you, Lord!
Lord, you have been so good to me. You have showered my life with your blessing. You have redeemed my life. You have forgiven my sins and healed my diseases. You have shown me your love and compassion. You have renewed my life. You have all my praise! Amen
