water rippleO Lord, your word is established in heaven forever. Your faithfulness endures throughout every generation. You set the earth in place, and it continues to stand. If your teachings had not made me happy, then I would have died in my misery. I will never forget your guiding principles, because you gave me a new life through them. I am yours. Save me, because I have searched for your guiding principles. (Psalm 119:89, 90, 92-94 GWT) God's truth brings freedom and joy. Not by compulsion to obey it, but an engagement in relationship. It results in new life and mercy rather than misery. ©Word-Strong_2013
