Psalm 119~ Mercy, Grace and Peace


I've been reading through Psalm 119. Reading it slowly and in small chunks, journaling as I go. This chapter has over 170 verses and is filled with rich good nuggets of truth!  While reading this, my heart has been more sensitive to all the things I have to be thankful for...every breath I take is from HIM! There is really nothing or no situation on earth that a believer has not cause to be thankful! The Psalmist in the passage seems to be crying out for more of God, while giving Him praise!
I long for the mercy, grace and peace that is described here~

Psalm 119:57-64 

Because you have satisfied me, God, I promise
to do everything you say.
I beg you from the bottom of my heart: smile,
be gracious to me just as you promised.
When I took a long, careful look at your ways,
I got my feet back on the trail you blazed.
I was up at once, didn't drag my feet,
was quick to follow your orders.
The wicked hemmed me in—there was no way out—
but not for a minute did I forget your plan for me.
I get up in the middle of the night to thank you;
your decisions are so right, so true—I can't wait till morning!
I'm a friend and companion of all who fear you,
of those committed to living by your rules.
Your love, God, fills the earth!
Train me to live by your counsel.
I have also been reading through Mark,
 as we lead into the weeks before Easter.
I am asking God to give me new eyes and
expand my capacity to receive
more of HIM and to understand HIS heart.
