Multitude Monday

Sometimes God's word is enough to get the point across!

Psalm 103 (CEV)~

With all my heart
    I praise the Lord,
    and with all that I am
    I praise his holy name!

With all my heart
    I praise the Lord!
    I will never forget
    how kind he has been.

The Lord forgives our sins,
heals us when we are sick,
    and protects us from death.
His kindness and love
    are a crown on our heads.
Each day that we live,
    he provides for our needs
    and gives us the strength
    of a young eagle.
For all who are mistreated,
    the Lord brings justice.
He taught his Law to Moses
    and showed all Israel
    what he could do.
The Lord is merciful!
He is kind and patient,
    and his love never fails.
The Lord won’t always be angry
    and point out our sins;
     he doesn’t punish us
    as our sins deserve.
How great is God’s love for all
    who worship him?
    Greater than the distance
    between heaven and earth!
How far has the Lord taken
    our sins from us?
    Farther than the distance
    from east to west!
Just as parents are kind
    to their children,
the Lord is kind
    to all who worship him,
     because he knows
    we are made of dust.
We humans are like grass
    or wild flowers
    that quickly bloom.
But a scorching wind blows,
    and they quickly wither
    to be forever forgotten.
The Lord is always kind
    to those who worship him,
and he keeps his promises
to their descendants
    who faithfully obey him.
God has set up his kingdom
in heaven,
    and he rules
    the whole creation.
All of you mighty angels,
who obey God’s commands,
    come and praise your Lord!
All of you thousands
who serve and obey God,
    come and praise your Lord!
All of God’s creation
and all that he rules,
    come and praise your Lord!
With all my heart
    I praise the Lord!
