I praise the Lord for he alone is worthy to be praised!
Psalm 145:3 (NIV)
Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
I praise the Lord for he alone is God and in Him I find hope!
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.
I have a choice to praise Him and I will tell my inner most parts to praise HIM!
1 Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
I shall choose to praise HIM even when I don’t feel like it.
I have so much to be thankful for as some blogs host Thankful Thursday, I’m reminded to give thanks for so much. I have good health. My family has good health. God has blessed us to be able to live on one income and I can stay home with the boys. We have a nice home and good vehicles. We have plenty of food to eat. We are truly blessed & I am thankful.
I do have petitions and battles, though nothing catastrophic, nevertheless battles. I occasionally battle migraine headaches and I’m having one today. These set me back two days at a time when they occur. Please lift me up in prayer about the headaches.
18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
21So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God's law; 23but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
The Lord has shown me what I ought to do, and I want to do good. But something is waging war with my mind and the law of sin is at work within me. Please pray that by the grace of God and our Savior Jesus Christ—this sin in me be conquered that battles against me!
I battle with food addiction. This is affecting more than just me. Please pray I be set free once and for all! I'm too tired to go at it alone anymore and I am requesting your support in prayer.
Thank You & Blessings in Christ--
