Praise the Lord.
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
My heart is beating.
I know it is, because I am conscious and alive.
I also know it is, because I can feel it in my chest.
God chose to create me and He is granting me life.
At some point in my infancy, I realized that I was alive.
At another point in my childhood, I realized that God was alive.
When I learned to read, the words of the Bible were available to me.
When I understood what sin was, I realized I was sinful.
When I understood Jesus’ death on the cross, I realized I could be forgiven.
Throughout my life, God has shown me great mercy and love.
He has shown me that He could be trusted.
Since your heart is beating, too, it is God who is granting you life.
Do you trust in Him today?
