By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
I read Psalm 119 last night. It is a long Psalm, but Ezra was saying things that I wanted to say to God. I truly do seek to follow You with all my heart. I know that sometimes I will not meet that challenge, but that's ok if I rely on the Lord and ask for forgiveness and strength in those times that I have failed or do not measure up.
I am a work in progress. Although, I think I am a very slow work in progress. I am a Yugo trying to keep up with God who is driving a Ferrari. I have no idea where that came from!! But, I think you know what I am saying. As long as I keep my eyes and heart on God, I believe that everything will work out for the best.
Dear Father, my heart is on fire for you; let my mind always do the same. I know that Your ways are what You strive for us to follow and I pray that you will help me seek Your guidance and repentance as I start on this long journey to become more like You. I thank you and ask this in Jesus' name, Amen!!
