2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
We came into this world with sin and embarked on our journey with hope and love for new and endless adventures. Too busy to see the pitfalls around us and ahead of us. We stumble and pick ourselves up to discover new avenues to cause us to get side-tracked from God, who is always present and with us.
Misfortune and ill health go with us to the end. Though troubles plague us our entire lives, we continue to forget our blessings and brush away the realization that we are not alone.
If we look closely within ourselves, Love and Mercy and Forgiveness prevail.
Someday, the joys, the struggles, and yes, even the tragedies of life will all fit into the picture—and it will be “A Perfect Picture”.
Make us think, feel, and do what attracts, challenges and enriches ourselves and others. I pray, through your Love, Forgiveness and Mercy, that our lives will be better fulfilled and bring us peace today and forevermore. Look down upon us and let us not forget to bless you—for you have blessed us, loved us and guarded us, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
