handing those things to God,

his word.
Oh, that my actions would
consistently reflect your principles!
How can a young person stay pure?
By obeying your word
and following its rules.
I have tried my best to find you -
don’t let me wander
from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
I lie in the dust, completely discouraged;
revive me by your word.
I told you my plans, and you answered,
now teach me your principles.
Help me understand the meaning
of your commandments,
and I will meditate on your
wonderful miracles.
I weep with grief;
encourage me by your word.
You made me, you created me,
now give me the sense to follow
your commands.
May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy,
for I have put my hope in your word.
I know O Lord, that your decisions are fair,
you disciplined me because I needed it.
Now let your unfailing love comfort me,
just as you promised me, your servant.
Your justice is eternal,
and your law is perfectly true.
As pressure and stress bear down on me,
I find joy in your commands.
Powerful people harass me without cause,
but my heart trembles only at your word.
I rejoice in your word,
like one who finds a great treasure.

Ask the Holy Spirit to take you deeper into this text.
Chew on each word to allow it to
take root in your heart and mind.

enough for whatever conversation
you need to have.

Let your mind and heart rest, and just be in your Father’s presence for a moment.
