Back to your regularly scheduled programming

Now back to reading the Bible in a year (with some brief side notes I'm sure). I'm now 1/3 of the way through the entire thing!

I read Psalms 103:1-22 tonight as part of my daily reading. It is one of the most uplifting sections of Psalms I've read since January. "Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's." WOW, and as if that's not enough, "He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities". No Karma or "What goes around comes around" to worry about when you're one of Gods children. Of course I'm not saying that bad things do not still happen, that would be foolish.

That verse looks familiar :)

I wondered why David used the eagle, and found this:

"When David knew all this, he felt strong again. He felt as a young eagle feels. An eagle is a large bird. It flies high in the sky, and feels strong and free. When God forgives us, we will feel as David felt!"
