Psalm for today

Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD.

Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.

They do nothing wrong; they walk in his ways.

You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.

Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!

Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.

I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.

I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.

How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.

I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you...


Ps.119: 1-11

  1. That is one of my favorite Psalms, Elizabeth. Thank you so much for posting! So much to think about. Amazing that God loves us and doesn't just wipe us off the face of the earth. I'm reading Genesis now. It's amazing all ofthe sin that's in the 1st book. He is such a patient and loving God. Amazing!
