Thoughts on Psalm 119 - Introduction

"Lord, help me to fall in love with Your Word."

I first prayed that in 2006. I had an encounter with Jesus several months prior, and had come to realize that the Bible was in fact the Word of God. So I sought the Lord that I might have a greater appreciation for it.

Within a short time, I came across Psalm 119, and I learned that this is one of God's answers to this request. And for a number of years, I have written music, sung, and meditated on this Great Psalm. Countless times I have drawn strength from this well.

So today I embark on a journey to accomplish two tasks:
  1. Make a short commentary on each verse.
  2. Record the music I have written. 
I have set a goal to post the commentary on Mondays and Thursdays - going through 8 verses in 4 weeks time. And in that same 4 weeks, I will record the music to each section of 8 verses and post it along with the commentary.

In doing so, I hope to dive deeper into that request I made of the Lord: that I might fall in love with the Word of God.

I hope you do too.


  1. Awesome man, thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work and creativity. Creativity is one of the purest proofs of God's existence and loving character. That and math.

  2. I am so excited to see and hear what The Lord has through your words and music Ben❤
