Psalm 138King James Version (KJV)
138 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
How did your day go? Was it good and did you thank God for it? Was it bad and you need God to be closer to help you through it? Was it a backslidding day and you need God for repentance? Whatever, our life goes we need God in it to worship it. To always have a need and a desire for God. Tonight, just blog your worship.

Psalm 137King James Version (KJV)
137 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.4 How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.7 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
This psalm to me is about remembering, taking a moment in time to reflect on life, to laugh or to cry. Recall your most spiritual and happy experience with God. And Recall that experince to life now. Also, can you match that experience to a song?

Psalm 136King James Version (KJV)
136 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.4 To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.6 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.7 To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:8 The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:9 The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.10 To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:11 And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.13 To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.16 To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.17 To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:18 And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:20 And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:21 And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:22 Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.
His mercy endures forever. Mercy to us is simply forgiveness. We thanked God for forgiveness when we know we did something bad. Yet, imagine a life without no forgiveness. That everything you did wrong, even the slighest you would be punished for. A small white lie, you know, honey does this dress make me look fat? Or the accidently slipped of the tongue if you stumped your toe. Maybe a tad jealous of your coworker getting that promotion over you? I want you to start your day off, comparing how different your life would be, what would be different from that life from the one you live with forgiveness.
