This was the first stanza of my winter devotions in response to Psalm 119. I wrote these verses in December through February as I meditated on Psalm 119. As I am preparing to resume my Disciple Bible class, I am thinking again about the importance of the Scriptures in my life. This has been a wonderful adventure this year.
On Word, Law and Life
Along the Way
Aware, aware, finally aware that the righteous are blessed, those who stay close to the Lord, steeped in the Word, blessed are they.
Alive, alive, we are finally alive as we, wide-eyed disciples, search out our master, search deep into the living–that Word from the beginning.
Aware of the way,
they follow His way,
Active, acting, aware and acting on precepts proscribed and written, carefully acting and awesome aware.
Alleluia and Amen! Obedient, praying, discerning, firming–finding the way,
A student, I study, searching the Word,
Today in Law, in the Word.
Abandoned, yes, once abandoned, no more
Alone, I listen, I obey, I try to obey.
Alive, I too live; alive, I give thanks;
in my spirit, alive; keep me right, o Lord.
