Psalm 103 as re-written by Rhesa on retreat:

 

Bless the LORD, O my soul

And all that is within me…

All the love and fear

All the anger and peace

All the dreams and doubts

All the kindness and indifference.

 

Bless the LORD, O my soul

And all that is within me,

Bless His holy name.

Jehovah, Creator

Father, Mother.

 

Bless the LORD, O my soul

And do not forget his benefits.

He calls my life by his design and equips my mind for his purpose.

HE LOVES ME.

He delivers my heart from despair and leads my desires with his own hand

So that he proves himself faithful, over and over again.

 

The LORD is.

He is the beginning and the end. He is the compassionate redeemer.

He is the creative healer. He is my mighty warrior.

He is the wise avenger. He is the reliable provider.

 

He knows my history and my heart.

He knows my purpose and my plan.

He heals the disease of my body and soul.

He hears the cry of my mouth and heart.

 

Bless the LORD for all that he has done.

Bless the LORD for all that he intends.

Bless the LORD for all that he is.

Bless the LORD for all that he provides.

Bless the LORD for he is good.

Peace,

Rhesa
