Psalm 103


A few months ago our pastor challenged us to memorize larger portions of Scripture and suggested Psalm 103.  I turned to Psalm 103 and thought, “wow, 22 verses” but decided to give it a try.

Last week, I successfully completed memorizing this wonderful psalm and I’m so glad I took that challenge.  Psalm 1 says that blessed is the man that meditates on His law day and night.  Learning to memorize large portions of Scripture definitely had me meditating day and night.  I am in the process of reciting each day for 100 days to move it into my long-term memory.

Psalm 103 verse 2 says:  Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.  What a wonderful way for me to forgot not ALL His benefits.  Every day that my mind is working on these verses, I am remembering all the benefits that the Lord has given me.

Next I would like to memorize Psalm 19.  Even though it’s shorter than Psalm 103, I want to memorize it because it’s one of my favorites.  I want the meditations of my heart to be pleasing to the Lord.   What could be better than meditating on God’s Word?
