This morning I am led to post scripture, I read it in many different ways in the bible but I love the message bibles version the most.
Psalm 34: 1-22 Message Bible Version
I will bless God every chance I get, my lungs will expand with His praise!
I live and breathe God; if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:
Join me in spreading the news; together let’s get the word out.
God met me more than halfway, He freed me from my anxious fears.
Look at Him and give Him your warmest smile.
Never hide your feelings from Him.
When I was desperate, I called out,
and God got me out of a tight spot.
God’s angels set up a circle
of protection while we pray.
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see
how good God is. (O taste and see that the Lord is GOOD!!!!)
Blessed are you who run with Him.
Worship God if you want the best;
worship opens doors to all His goodness.
Young lions on the prowl get hungry,
but God seekers are full of God.
Come, children listen closely;
I’ll give you a lesson on worship.
Who out there has a lust for life?
Can’t wait each day to come upon beauty?
Guard your tongue from profanity,
and no more lying through your teeth.
Turn your back on sin; do something good.
Embrace peace-don’t let it get away.
God keeps an eye on His friends,
His ears pick up every moan and groan.
God won’t put up with rebels;
He’ll cut them from the pack.
Is anyone crying for help? God is listening,
ready to rescue you.
If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there;
if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.
Disciples so often get into trouble;
still, God is there every time.
He’s your body-guard, shielding every bone;
not even a finger gets broken.
The wicked commit slow suicide,
they waste their lives hating the good.
God pays for each slave’s freedom;
no one who runs to Him loses out.
The word of God for the people of God, be blessed this very day and let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable in Gods sight He is your strength and your redeemer, let the redeemed of the Lord say so!!
Forever His Humble Servant,
