psalm 119 – part 1
Here’s the backstory: Psalm 119 is a chapter in one of the largest books in the Bible that has recently become very dear to my heart. Many times the Psalmist (usually David) would write things that resonated with me personally and then the next line would be something so far outside of our normal life that he would lose me. Enemies closing into a field or dogs chewing on bones….I simply couldn’t relate.
Recently, during a tough season for me, Psalm 119 came bursting into my life and rooted it’s words so deep into my heart I couldn’t help but share them with you. It’s a long one, so get ready! At 176 verses it’s the longest chapter in the Bible. Simply put: I can’t get over it. This chapter has been a go-to for me when I don’t know what to pray, or let’s be honest, don’t want to pray. I read Psalm 119 and it seems to put words in my mouth that I didn’t know I wanted to say.
