today's reading.
Psalms 119:145-160    With my whole heart I cry; answer me, O LORD! I will keep your statutes...

think about it.
How would you describe the depth of the psalmist's need for God and His words (119:145-148)? What does he ask the Lord to do for him (119:153-155)? Verse 160 is a statement about the totality of God's Word as truth; how would you explain this to someone who's not sure about trusting the Bible?

the blog.
The writer of Psalm 119 was, without a doubt, committed and dedicated to following the Lord. So when I got to verse 145 I smiled because it was like the Psalmist was saying to me "Hey, just in case you missed it, my heart…my whole heart…is given to the Lord." He then spends the next several verses showing us what that looks like in his life.

So what does giving your whole heart to the Lord mean for you? What are some examples from your own life or examples you've observed from others that you're working on? Tami W.
