Whoa. Sorry for the double post, but, I wanted to read something from Psalms before going to bed, and I literally just opened up Psalms and my eyes fell on this chapter and verse. It couldn’t possibly sum up my cravings as of late. This is definitely being devoted to memory. (How I wish I had a photographic memory and could easily memorize the entire Bible! How amazing it would be to have every word in your heart and mind!)
Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes;
and I will keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law
and observe it with my whole heart.
Lead me in the path of your commandments,
for I delight in it.
Incline my heart to your testimonies,
and not to selfish gain!
Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
and give me life in your ways.
Confirm to your servant your promise,
that you may be feared.
Turn away the reproach that I dread,
for your rules are good.
Behold, I long for your precepts;
in your righteousness give me life!
