Because I have hoped in your word

Shirley Parker and Hiram and Karla Smith are all doing well. Thank you for your prayers!

Psalm 119:73-80

“Your hands have made and fashioned me;
give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.
Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice,
because I have hoped in your word.
I know, O LORD, that your judgments are right,
and that in faithfulness you have humbled me.
Let your steadfast love become my comfort
according to your promise to your servant.
Let your mercy come to me, that I may live;
for your law is my delight.
Let the arrogant be put to shame,
because they have subverted me with guile;
as for me, I will meditate on your precepts.
Let those who fear you turn to me,
so that they may know your decrees.
May my heart be blameless in your statutes,
so that I may not be put to shame.  ”  NRSV

Psalm 119 is filled with so much lived faith and encouragement. Let it speak to your hearts today as it has in several previous posts. Let me encourage you to read it several times and sit with it for a while in silent reflection.

Be a blessing to someone today!
