WOWed by these benefits (repost)

(i originally wrote and posted this to renown on February 8, 2010.)

This is such an awesome song I read the lyrics to on Friday. I have been thinking about it ever since. I read it again today and still can't get away from it.

It was written by this songwriter guy named David. Maybe you've heard of him? It goes like this:

"Praise the LORD, my soul;
       all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, 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.
The LORD works righteousness
       and justice for all the oppressed." -
Psalm 103:1-6

I am seriously WOWed by these benefits from God. Just look at that. I'm blown away and have been for 4 days in a row now. I can't move on from this song. I'm just reveling in awe of who this God is.

And if that weren't enough, the song goes on to say this about our God:
"The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
       slow to anger, abounding in love.
" (Psalm 103:8)
I really don't feel like there's a whole lot i need to say (or can say). Just dwell on this song with me. I'm still just basking in the awesomeness of it.
I wish I had some musical talent and I would write some music for it... Maybe David or Scottie or somebody will do that one day?
