119 Yod

What makes the most sense?  Should I be shaped by my own plans to better my life or should I be molded by my Maker?  Should I try to walk in the shoes of my own making or will I follow God’s steps?

What sense will this make?  Will I have the sense to follow God’s desires and instructions for me today?  Will I have the audacity to hope in God’s word?  Will I have the courage to accept his discipline?  Will I allow him to comfort my broken soul… to surround me with his tenderness?  Will I have the sense to trust God?  Will I delight in him?  Will I defend God today in the face of haters?  Will I be brave enough to call his enemies my enemies?  Will I be unashamed to obey God?

The picture of the shoe is of a patented shoe-cooling invention.  Essentially… air-conditioned shoes.  Anyway, here’s Psalm 119:73-80: 

73 You made me; you created me.
      Now give me the sense to follow your commands.
74 May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy,
      for I have put my hope in your word.
75 I know, O Lord, that your regulations are fair;
      you disciplined me because I needed it.
76 Now let your unfailing love comfort me,
      just as you promised me, your servant.
77 Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live,
      for your instructions are my delight.
78 Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me;
      meanwhile, I will concentrate on your commandments.
79 Let me be united with all who fear you,
      with those who know your laws.
80 May I be blameless in keeping your decrees;
      then I will never be ashamed.
