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:
- Make a short commentary on each verse.
- Record the music I have written.
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.
