This morning I was reading Psalm 119 and stopped to meditate on verses 35-37.

35. Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it. 36. Incline my heart to your testimonies and not to selfish gain! 37. Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.

I was challenged with the reminder that we must not only turn way from worthless things but turn unto God’s word for life in His ways. Where do we find life?…in his ways. Where do we learn about His ways?…in His word. There are no short-cuts! We should realize the pleasures of God are found in His word. Oh, how I need to commit myself to the study and meditation of his word. May we turn our eyes from the worthless things so we can experience life. -Remaining desperate-
