Psalm 119:33-40 (NIV)
33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
38 Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.
39 Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.
40 How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness.
Yes LORD…for us all.
This…THIS…is what we need.
You are Creator-God, Loving-God, the Beginning and the End.
You created beauty that we cannot fathom in nature…the whimsical, beautiful, stunning touches…the humor.
Thank you for loving us that much!
Teach us these Psalm 119 things, LORD…may we do each of those things and truly be humbled and repentant when we do not.
