Oh, how I love your law!
I meditate on it all day long.
(Psalm 119:97, NIV)
Why do I find the Bible so intriguing?
Why do I never tire of reading it,
though many see it only as so much history and poetry—
dry, strange, and irrelevant?
Because I read it as a love letter from You to me, Lord God.
It speaks to me about You in all Your mystery.
It shows me how You work and react.
It expresses Your love for me on every page.
It tells me how my life can be blessed by You.
Thus I find Your Word encouraging, enlightening, and heartwarming.
I find it satisfying mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Every time I read it, I hear more of Your passion.
I grasp more of Your amazing plan for us.
Lord, how wonderful it is to learn of You!
