I’ve stumbled into a regular writing rhythm. Forty plus days straight.
Wahoo! Praise The Lord.
Sometimes, baby steps push us to the next level.
65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Lord, according unto thy word.
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.
71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
~ Psalm 119:65-72
Ten scripture reference to verses:
And this I pray, that your love May abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgement;
~ Philippians 1:9 ~
18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God. 19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.
~ Jeremiah 31:18-19 ~
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6 for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
~ Hebrews 12:5-11 ~
For thou, LORD, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
~ Psalm 86:5 ~
Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
~ Psalm 125:4 ~
They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
~ Psalm 17:10 ~
Make the heart of his people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
~ Isaiah 6:10 ~
They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
~ Jeremiah 5:28 ~
10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. 11 For wisdom, is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it,
~ Proverbs 8:10-11 ~
My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
~ Proverbs 8:19 ~
Have a marvelous day!
Abundant blessings, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.
As always, I welcome your thoughts.
