I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless you, and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; his greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
The might of your awesome deeds shall be proclaimed, and I will declare your greatness.
They shall celebrate the fame of your abundant goodness, and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.
All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your faithful shall bless you.
They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and tell of your power,
to make known to all people your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The Lord is faithful in all his words, and gracious in all his deeds.
The Lord upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.
You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of all who fear him; he also hears their cry, and saves them.
The Lord watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh will bless his holy name forever and ever.
One generation to another. Something that we are all called to be about. This Psalm speaks of telling the Lord’s stories from one generation to another…As I think of that, I think of my parents, my grandparents, many other family members, and dear friends who have passed many things on to me – be it the stories of the Lord, life lessons, stories from the past, and much more. This afternoon, I hit some balls at the driving range and as I put my bag on my cart, I noticed the club cover for my 3 wood – Ralphie the buffalo from the University of Colorado and I thought of what my dad passed along to me – a love of the Buffs (maybe one day they will get back to where they once were), a love of golf, and much more that is far more important in the grand scheme. I am thankful for him, for my mother, and for the many others who showed me the way. I seek to do the same for my children and for others today.
