"Our Christ - The Living Word" - 07/16/17 Psalms 103-105

This past March 07 I was sitting in a darkened room beside a bed.  My grandmother lay in it taking her last steps on this earth. It was during her last hours I found comfort and peace through the reading of The Psalms on my phone. 

We would have celebrated her 96th birthday two days ago.  Time.  Although it passes, there are still constant reminders of those we share life with.  Reminders of what has been.  where we have walked.  Whom we have walked with. 

There are many being lifted up in prayer by His Warriors each and every day.  While on this earth we shall be taking steps through the valley.  over the mountain tops. 

Wherever your steps are, I am praying His Words will bring you what is needed as you are walking through this world towards Heaven.  Our eternal home with Him.  Where there are no more tears.  no more pain.  no more death.

His Word.
His Living Word.

"The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.
We have seen His Glory,
The Glory of The One and only Son, who came from The Father, full of Grace and Truth"(John 1:14).

Our Hope.  May it be tucked into your heart and lived through each of your steps. 

"O my soul, bless God.
    From head to toe, I’ll bless His Holy Name!

O my soul, bless God,
    don’t forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you’re always young in His presence.
God makes everything come out right;
    He puts victims back on their feet.

He showed Moses how He went about His work,
    opened up His plans to all Israel.

God is sheer mercy and grace;
    not easily angered, He’s rich in love.

He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold,
    nor hold grudges forever.

He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
    nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.

As high as heaven is over the earth,
    so strong is His Love to those who love Him.
And as far as sunrise is from sunset,
    He has separated us from our sins.

As parents feel for their children,
    God feels for those who love Him.

He knows us inside and out,
    keeps in mind that we’re made of mud.
Men and women don’t live very long;
    like wildflowers they spring up and blossom,
But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly,
    leaving nothing to show they were here.

God’s Love, though, is ever and always,

eternally present to all who love Him,

Making everything right for them and their children
    as they follow His Covenant ways
    and remember to do whatever He said.
God has set His Throne in Heaven;
    He rules over us all. He’s The King!

So bless God, you angels,
    ready and able to fly at His bidding,
    quick to hear and do what He says.
Bless God, all you armies of angels,
    alert to respond to whatever He wills.
Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are—
    everything and everyone made by God.
And you, O my soul, bless God!"(103)
