Today's reading: Psalm 119:65-72 (Teth)
Have you ever noticed how hard times seem to draw us (or drive us depending on our heart and attitude) closer to God and His Word? That's certainly been my experience. So when I read verses 67 and 71, they resonated with me. I particularly identified with verse 71 and found myself thinking, Boy, have I ever lived this.
"Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word" (vs. 67).
"It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes" (vs. 71).
Have difficult circumstances prompted you to spend more time in God's Word? Can you join with the psalmist in saying that going through affliction was good because it taught you more about God and His Word? Tami
