Psalm 119: 129-136

Your testimonies are wonderful;
therefore my soul keeps them.

The unfolding of your words gives light;
it imparts understanding to the simple.
 

I open my mouth and pant,
because I long for your commandments.

Turn to me and be gracious to me,
as is your way with those who love your name.

Keep steady my steps according to your promise,
and let no iniquity get dominion over me.

Redeem me from man's oppression,
that I may keep your precepts.

Make your face shine upon your servant,
and teach me your statutes.

My eyes shed streams of tears,
because people do not keep your law.

The kids and I read this passage at breakfast today.  So interesting that King David (did he write this one?) and myself and millions of other saints throughout the past several thousand years can have such common threads running through our hearts. 

I guess we all know the same Person 🙂
