Word for the Weekend - Psalm 119

Photo Credit:  Rita Mezzela, Italy
"Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees,
then I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
and obey it with all my heart,
Direct me in the path of your commands, 
for there I find delight.

Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things:
preserve my life according to your word.
Fullfill your promise to your servant 
so that you may be feared.
Take away the disgrace I dread,
for your laws are good.
How I long for your precepts!
Preserve my life in your righteousness."

Psalm 119 : 33 - 40  NIV

I was just talking with a friend about that exact passage a few days ago. Thank you for bringing it to mind again, and with that beautiful photo.
