Psalm 119:130-136New Living Translation (NLT)
"The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. I pant with expectation,
longing for your commands. Come and show me your mercy, as you do for all who love your name. Guide my steps by your word, so I will not be overcome by evil. Ransom me from the oppression of evil people; then I can obey your commandments. Look upon me with love; teach me your decrees. Rivers of tears gush from my eyes because people disobey your instructions.
I'm so thankful for HIS word that gives me light in such a dark world. When I have an asthma attack I pant with expectation that whatever it is that I take to help will help me to breathe easier. Just as I study HIS word I pant with expectation that He would give me wisdom to understand HIS commands. I love HIM and I'm thankful that HE shows me mercy. I ask him to guide me so that I will not be overcome by evil and to help me obey His commandments.
I want to feel HIS love, I want to learn HIS decrees. I cry because of how we as people disobey HIS instructions.
Life is hard. But if we just keep trusting in HIM, HE is our light, He shows us mercy, He Guides us, and most importantly He loves us.
Oh how he loves you and me! So thankful that He looks upon me with love.
Are you thankful for His light, mercy, guidance and love today?
