“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 119:33-37




Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes,
and I will observe it to the end.
Give me understanding, that I may keep Your law
and observe it with my whole heart.

Lead me in the path of Your commandments,
for I delight in it.
Turn my heart to Your decrees,
and not to selfish gain.
Turn my eyes from looking at vanities;
give me life in Your ways.


– Psalm 119:33-37 (NRSV)






How stiff and unyielding we can become

because of our pride

and our self-centeredness!


How determined we can be

to hang on to earthly pleasures

and to achieve our worldly targets;

to live our own lives

and conduct our business

in our own manner

– allowing not even God, to have a say!


True believers, on the other hand,

confide in God

and turn their hearts to His decrees

as they seek His counsel and direction

in everything they do

– in how they live their lives

and how they conduct their affairs.


Am I prepared to let God into all the aspects of my life?

Am I truly willing to listen to God’s voice,

other than to my own?

Am I able to discern God’s voice from my own?


Am I ready to bend

and to accept and do God’s will?






Teach me, O God,

and bend my heart to Your will.
