Day 197- Thankful to be able to remember good things

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of his benefits.” Psalm 103:1,2 NASB

How deeply we have to reach within ourselves to say ALL that is within me bless His Holy name!

  • Yes, some of that ALL was worrying about something instead of blessing His Holy name.
  • Some of that ALL was forgetting some of His benefits.
  • Some of that ALL needs to be brought into submission to our amazing LORD!

“Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:3-5 NKJV

Today I’m thankful to be able to remember the good things.

I’m thankful that I’m able to make an effort to do so.

I’m thankful that when I forget to remember the blessings of the Lord, He reminds me and shows me mercy.

What about you? Do you sometimes forget to remember how God has blessed you? Are you thankful for His reminders and His mercy when we fail Him?

  1. Back in 1983 I started a journal to record God’s faithfulness to our family. Though I can’t say I’ve remembered to write down every occurrence, it’s thrilling to see the evidence in 1330 entries of what God has done–his provision, protection, engineering of circumstances, blessing, and more. Just three years ago I started another journal, a “Celebration of Small Things.” Such fun to watch for God’s extraordinary amidst the seemingly ordinary. It IS a wonderful gift to be able to remember His good gifts. Thank you, Ruth!
