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.

Thanks Laura for sharing you thoughts and your husband's awesome effort to hide God's word in his heart... inspiring.

Even though Daniel in the lion's den is a well-known Bible story, I still find it very meaningful. Daniel knew that he was going to get in serious trouble if he continued to pray to God. But in verse 10, "Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before." It was like he didn't care about the new law at all. He had complete faith that God would help him. We should also have this kind of faith. I often think I am trusting in God but then later on when it seems like things are not going to turn out well, I lose faith and start doing things myself. I should be more like Daniel, who put the situation completely in God's hands.

God is waiting for us to repent to him so we will not be destroyed.
