Scripture:  Psalm 119:12 – Praise be to you Lord, teach me your decrees

Observation:  To learn God’s decrees starts with praising the Lord

Application:  I need to be in God’s word more than I am, often I study God’s word September thru June, like a school year and in those times I am fully aware of God and his surroundings and I learn so much from Him.  The other two months of the year I am aware of God but my spirit hungers for Him as if to say, daughter, I am here and I miss you.

God is so amazing, even in my off time he is nudging me and he often reminds me how much he loves me.  I want praise to be on my lips at all time, not just when he’s teaching me but when I look at the beauty of Mt. Rainier, swim in a warm Ocean in Hawaii, or resting on a lazy Sunday.

Praise be to you Lord for blessing me and loving me right where I am.

Prayer:  God thank you for giving me love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self control, it is a true reminder of who you are and how much you love me.   Praise be your Holy Name.
