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 do. What will you do? I will remember all that you have done for me. I won’t quickly forget what you have done for me. I won’t leave what you have done for me behind me as a distant memory. What benefit is there in remembering all that I have done for you? Remembering all that you have done for me will fill me with peace and hope and joy. Remembering all that you have done for me will fill my heart and mind and life with praise and worship and thanksgiving to you. Remembering all that you have done for me will encourage and strengthen my faith in you. Remembering all that you have done for me will help me to keep putting off my old life in the world and keep putting on my new life in you. Yes, these are all benefits you will experience as you keep on remembering all that I have done for you.
So, tell me now, what have I done for you? You rescued me from a life without you. You pulled me out of the muck and mire and set me on solid ground. You led me out of the darkness of this world and brought me into the light of your presence. You redeemed and healed my bruised and battered and broken life. You revived and refreshed and renewed and restored my soul. You have filled me with your Spirit. You set me on the path of life so I could love and follow and serve you. You adopted me into your family. You have made me to be your child. You gave my life purpose and meaning and hope. You have made me able to bear fruit for your kingdom. You have made me able to bring glory to your name. My old life without you is gone. My new life with you is here. You are now leading and guiding my life. My future is in your hands. Yes, I have done and am doing all these things for you.
What do you have to say about all that I have done for you? I am grateful and thankful, beyond any words that I can express. It is my joy to live my life with and for you. Thank you, for your kindness, mercy and love. You have filled my life with your goodness. I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. That is very good.
Lord, I will take time to consider all you have done for me. You have richly blessed my life. I have an abundance of reasons to give my thanks and praise to you. You have redeemed, healed and blessed my life. You have helped me to love, follow and serve you. Amen
