Such wonderful promises in these verses. When we are low, filled with sorrow, if we turn to God and ask him to help us learn his ways, he will preserve our lives, strengthen us, keep us from shame. Thank you, Father.
I am laid low in the dust;
preserve my life according to your word.
I gave an account of my ways and you answered me;
teach me your decrees.
Cause me to understand the way of your precepts,
that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds.
My soul is weary with sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word.
Keep me from deceitful ways;
be gracious to me and teach me your law.
I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I have set my heart on your laws.
I hold fast to your statutes, Lord;
do not let me be put to shame.
I run in the path of your commands,
for you have broadened my understanding.
Thanks for sharing this!
The last couple of lines really stand out to me:
"I run in the path of your commands,
for you have broadened my understanding."
So glad you had a good week and did some proofreading (you are awesome and a blessing!) and moved forward in your own writing. Even started a new exercise regime! Great! I'm starting to walk a mile a day (except I missed yesterday).
