PSALM 103 (English Standard Version)
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.

The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.
For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.

He initiates and we respond. God loves to make the first move. Scripture says, “We love Him because He first loved us.” Only God can love God. It takes God to love God. Only God can love God. What does He do?

He sends out His Love to us. His Love comes to us, it changes something inside of us, and we end up giving back to God the very thing He gave us—Love! We love Him because He first loved us!

Whatever God wants from you, He intends to give you! So all of the commands of God are actually the desires of God.

What God wants from you, He intends to give you first!

So when He asks you to give Him the preeminence in your heart, what place do you have in His heart?


God loves you as if you were the only person in the world. It is that personal. He loves you like you are the only person in the world. That is how great He is.


Hi. I am brand new here. This was my first time reading the blog. I just wanted to respond to your question about our favorite charitable organizations. I worked with Convoy of Hope last month for the huricane Katrina relief...and they were really great...I have also had some experience with World Vision...as our local Christian radio station works a lot with them.
