Psalm 103

Praise the Lord, O my soul; 
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not al 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 thins
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.
He made known his was to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse, 
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities,
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
for he know how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
As for man, his days are like grass,
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone, 
and its place remembers it no mer.
But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord's love is with those who fear him
and his righteousness with their children's children--
with those who keep his covenant 
and remember to obey his precepts. 
The Lord has established his throne in heaven, 
and his kingdom rules over all.
Praise the Lord, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding, 
who obey his word.
Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
Praise the Lord, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.
Praise the Lord, O my soul.

There you go, food for the soul. Honestly, I was only going to write the first few verses, but I read on and realized that it's so good that you can't stop there. I hope that you are having a great week and are not getting too stressed about Christmas presents, but are focusing on why we even give Christmas presents. I must say that I've had a bit of trouble with that this year (I'm knitting my sister socks and I don't know if I'll get them done in time). To all of you who have finals, I hope they go well! 
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go hang out with my bestfriend. Have a lovely evening!!

Much Love,
Lindsey Nicole

{p.s. I'm getting so excited to wear my dress for christmas eve! What are YOU wearing? I'd love to hear!}


  1. My favorite part of this, and it always is been, "as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us." Amen again and again until the Lord comes back :)
