All That Is Within Me

photo-3Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Ps. 103:1

Last week, this verse came to my mind while I was brushing my teeth. I love how the Lord catches our attention in the mundane moments.

It is a familiar verse…nothing new here.

But this time, I heard the emphasis on the phrase “all that is within me.”

Let’s be honest…I find it so much easier to bless when I’m in a good place and when I’m feeling like things are going well. But, if I’m honest, I’m in a “good place” about 43% of the day. The rest of the time, I’m anxious or distracted, or confused, or sad, or depressed. BUT this mess is what is within me too. And I’m called to bless the Lord in those broken moments.

So, bless the Lord oh my soul! May all the broken places, all the doubts, all the sadness, and all the anxiety bless His Holy Name in 2014!
