psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard...

In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the LORD is clean,
enduring forever;
the rules of the LORD are true,
and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold...
sweeter also than honey...
Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can discern his errors?
Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
from psalm 19.
which i recently re-discovered.
i want to love His word like this.
maybe i will share some of my thoughts in the next post.
but i don't want to this to become a "my theology" blog.

haha.
yes i do felicity.
in fact, when i started this as a way to keep in touch with the sczebels, they were long posts. very random. we all kind of built off of eachothers blogs. they were almost like conversations. crazy.
but i want my blog to be more about God than me. so alot of times I post whatever scripture has ministered to me the most lately. i will do one on NA as soon as I figure out what to share and what not too.

thanks for asking.
