Daily Psalm 103  NLT
1 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, I tell myself, and never forget the
    good things he does for me.  
3 He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.  
4 He ransoms me from death and surrounds me with
     love and tender mercies.  
5 He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed
     like the eagle's!  
6 The LORD gives righteousness and justice to all who
     are treated unfairly.  
7 He revealed his character to Moses and his deeds to
      the people of Israel.  
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious; he is slow to get
      angry and full of unfailing love.  
9 He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry
10 He has not punished us for all our sins, nor does he
       deal with us as we deserve.  
11 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as        great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
12 He has removed our rebellious acts as far away
       from us as the east is from the west.  
13 The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and
       compassionate to those who fear him.  
14 For he understands how weak we are; he knows we
       are only dust.  
15 Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, 
       we bloom and die.  
16 The wind blows, and we are gone-- 
       as though we had never been here.  
17 But the love of the LORD remains forever 
       with those who fear him. 
    His salvation extends to the children's children  
18 of those who are faithful to his covenant, 
     of those who obey his commandments!  
19 The LORD has made the heavens his throne; from
      there he rules over everything.  
20 Praise the LORD, you angels of his, 
      you mighty creatures who carry out his plans,
      listening for each of his commands.  
21 Yes, praise the LORD, you armies of angels 
      who serve him and do his will!  
22 Praise the LORD, everything he has created,
      everywhere in his kingdom. 
    As for me--I, too, will praise the LORD.  

May I never  forget the 
good things He does for me!
The psalmist helps us remember the good things God does for us. Take a look at the verbs used (v. 3 -5): He forgives, heals, ransoms from death, surrounds with love, fills our life with good things and renews us!

Look at some of the things He does not do to us: get angry quickly, constantly accuse us, remain angry, punish us for all our sins, or deal with us as we deserve (v. 8-10).

God crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies. He fills our life with good things. Let all that you are praise His holy name!
With all that I am I praise You! 
With my whole heart I praise You! 
I will not forget the good things that You do for me. Thank you, that because I reverence Your name, your love remains with me forever!
