To bless the Lord with my mind:
I must think about God,
read the Bible,

I need to stir up godly emotions
and try to take control over ungodly emotions.
I need to be aware
that many things can powerfully

The circumstances that I allow in my life, and
The entertainment that I choose
- will greatly affect -

I come before you and say:
I will bless the Lord.
Blessed be the Lord who gives me life.

Blessed be the Lord who loves me.

Verses 1 and 22
Psalm 103 KJV
The beginning of Psalm 103
the ending of Psalm 103
can be simple words such as:
"Lord, I praise you."
Praise can be enthusiastic!
Praise can be musical!
Psalm 103 teaches us
When thinking about the beginning and ending verse
of Psalm 103
I am guided to think
of the wisdom
of praising God
at the beginning and the ending of my day.
Take note that
Psalm 92 teaches us
Psalm 92 says:
It is good to say, "Thank you" to the Lord,
to sing praises to the God who is above all gods.
Every morning tell him,
"Thank you for your kindness,"
and every evening
in all his faithfulness.
Sing his praises,
accompanied by music
from the harp and lute and lyre.
You have done so much for me, O Lord.
No wonder I am glad!
I sing for joy.
O Lord, what miracles you do!
And how deep are your thoughts!
