“…give me life…”

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Psalm 119      Daleth. Vs 25-32

 My soul clings to the dust;

 give me life according to your word!

When I told of my ways, you answered me;

 teach me your statutes!

 Make me understand the way of your precepts,

and I will meditate on your wondrous works.

 My soul melts away for sorrow;

strengthen me according to your word!

Put false ways far from me

 and graciously teach me your law!

I have chosen the way of faithfulness;

 I set your rules before me.

I cling to your testimonies, O LORD;

let me not be put to shame!

I will run in the way of your commandments

 when you enlarge my heart!

We seem to cling to things of this life David calls “dust.”  Dust is also referred to as dirt containing nutrients for seed of this world; having little to do with the spiritual, much to do with the physical.  We can trade our desire for dust  for life that comes from the Word of God.  We can ask for understanding as we read or listen to the Word.  And we will hear God answer us.  Let’s meditate on that which gives life!

“…My soul clings to the dust;

 give me life according to your word! …”
