Encouraging Words

I lead a small group at our church.  It is a group of wonderful women.  I encourage them to read a small passage of scripture daily to see how the power of doing so will change them.  So this is the passage I asked the ladies to read the last two weeks.

Psalm 103:1-5

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

This passage was in a book study that the women’s ministry team was leading called “Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl” by Lysa Terkeurst.  It is a good study.  It hits you in all the right places.  She writes, “This passage outlines everything we need during our ugly moments: praise the Lord and remember how He forgives me, heals me, redeems me, loves me, has compassion on me, satisfies my desires in good ways, and renews my strength.”
