Bless the Lord, O my soul; Who redeems my life from destruction!
My father got a very serious virus infection last December. He was admitted to emergency and then sent to ICU for a few days. Health team worked so hard and couldn’t find the cause for low blood pressure, fatigue and a lot of pain over the body. I remembered the very night at ICU, my sister called form oversea and wanted to comfort him with Psalm 23 (the Lord will walk him through the valley of the shadow of death), but my father responded her with Psalm 103: Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His Holy name! I was at the bed side and felt much uplifted and amazed at my father’s faith and his sound mind even he was at great pain and life threatening situation.
Yes, he is right. Bless the Lord. In about three weeks, he was discharged from hospital on 27th of December. This was such a memorable Christmas for him.
