I love Psalms 119. I wanted to jump in here with some comments before we leave this wonderful Psalm.

Not to brag on my husband, but he has chosen to memorize the whole Psalm in it's entirety. Yes you read this right, all 176 verses of Psalms 119. It is amazing how this has blessed him in his life and just wanted to share this with you all. These Psalms have a very personal application to every aspect of our lives and answer so many questions. My husband has come up with one liners and answers to many things people say to him throughout the day. My husband works in the healthcare industry and sees many people, as I do working retail. I've probably only memorized a few but he has nearly tackled the whole thing. It has taken him several months to do this and is no easy task. Another thing that he has done is researched the Hebrew alphabet and has diciphered many obscure tid bits of information. Here is a neat web site I'd like to share that explains what "Aleph", "Beth" and "Gimel" mean. I am not sure that everyone noticed how Psalms 119 is divided up into 8 verses with one of these Hebrew names at the head of each grouping of 8. Check out this web site for further information at www.hebrew4christians.com. Each of these headers has a specific Hebrew symbol. You may find this to be very interesting as I have.

As a gift for my husband, I have printed out all the Psalms but cutting and pasting from our daily reading of Psalms 119 along with all of Mike's commentary. I have italized and put shawdowing around all the commentary and have cut and pasted all the pictures as well. So far I am up to about 13 pages with more to go to finish up.

Thanks Mike for all our wonderfull incite on Psalm 119. The unfolding of your words gives light..." Do you believe this is true? Does reading God's Word, the Bible, bring light into your life? If you did not read God's Word would you be in darkness? Some food for thought.

Verse 138 is just one more small example from this incredible Psalm - "Your decrees are perfect; they are entirely worthy of our trust." Do you believe that God's Word, the Bible, is perfect? Is it entirely worthy of our trust? Would you consider the Bible to be a perfect book of counsel for your life? And yes I do consider the bible to be a perfect book that has an answer for every part of my life. Thanks again for the One Year Bible Blog.

Thank you Laura for your sharing!
It is sucn an encouragement to find faithful brothers and sisters on this blog - people who are living to please our Lord. Thank you Mike, thank you everyone!
2 Peter 3:10, 14, 17, 18 (NLT)
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.
14 Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,
17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness,
18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
came across this poem, share with all of you:
"Out Of This Life
Out of this life I shall never take / Things of silver and gold I make.
All that I cherish and hoard away / After I leave, on the earth must stay.
Though I have toiled for a painting rare / To hang on my wall, I must leave it there.
Though I call it mine and I boast its worth / I must give it up when I quit the earth.
All that I gather and all that I keep, / I must leave behind when I fall asleep.
And I wonder often what I shall own / In that other life, when I pass alone.
What shall they find and what shall they see / In the soul that answers the call for me?
Shall the great Judge learn when my task is through / That the spirit had gathered some riches, too?
Or shall at the last it be mine to find / That all I had worked for I’d left behind?
~ Edgar A. Guest"
May the following be a prayer for all of us!
2 Peter 1:5-7 (NLT)
5 In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge,
6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness,
7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.

God bless you!
Joyce
