You see the Bible truly is living and active just as it proclaims to be. It can and will speak right into the very heart and soul of the reader, penetrating to the dividing soul and spirit. (Hebrews 4:12)
Today I was reading Psalm 116. It struck me as to it's raw emotion and intensity and to the fact that it could have been something I would have wrote. It contained so many similarities to what I have overcome and the goodness God has shown to me in my life.
So below I will have two versions of Psalm 116. One is word for word out of the NIRV, the other is my version. Where I insert my name and my heartfelt praise, devotion and sincerity to God during one of the most difficult times of my life. This is why I love King David. He messed up and sinned...alot but God was never far off nor did He condemn Him. He loved him through his darkest times and out the other side.
