The heavens tell of the glory of God.
The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or a word;
their voice is silent in the skies;
yet their message has gone out to all the earth,
and their words to all the world.
The sun lives in the heavens
where God placed it.
It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom
after his wedding.
It rejoices like a great athlete
eager to run the race.
The sun rises at one end of the heavens
and follows its course to the other end.
Nothing can hide from its heat.

The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of the LORD are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are clear,
giving insight to life.
Reverence for the LORD is pure,
lasting forever.
The laws of the LORD are true;
each one is fair.
They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
They are a warning to those who hear them;
there is great reward for those who obey them.

How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
Keep me from deliberate sins!
Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
and innocent of great sin.
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

    maris.i love you. and i loved your last post so so much.i’ve been frequenting ihop [prayer] lately and god is moving in me. he is using that place to move me to greater things. in fact, [i say this on your blogspot because it’s more private than say…xanga] i have really been praying about participating in their internship and i believe that it’s what the Lord wants for me.and i’m not sure if i would have ever known that had you and i not gone there last fall. even if it was only their coffeeshop, it was a seed that was planted. and he used you to plant that seed.i’m not sure if you realize just how many seeds you’ve planted in my life. [seriously]i love you and i’m sorry this comment is so freaking long. why i didn’t just write an email, i’m not sure.oh you:love me
