Sunday Psalm • Psalm 119:33-40

God, teach me lessons for living
so I can stay the course.
Give me insight so I can do what You tell me —
my whole life one long, obedient response.

Guide me down the road of Your commandments;
I love traveling this freeway!

Give me a bent for Your words of wisdom,
and not for piling up loot.

Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets,
invigorate me on the pilgrim way.

Affirm Your promises to me —
promises made to all who fear You.

Deflect the harsh words of my critics —
but what You say is always so good. 

See how hungry I am for Your counsel; 
preserve my life through Your righteous ways!

Psalm 119:33-40
