O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
They who seek my life will be destroyed;
they will go down to the depths of the earth.
They will be given over to the sword
and become food for jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God's name will praise him,
while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
When I read "Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you"... I felt it. I mean, I felt God like he was sitting on my knee about to tell me what he wanted for Christmas right there on the couch. I haven't let Him in like that in a long, long time. And when I felt it, I just sat there and thought the name "God"... just let it echo in my head. And I was worshipping my God... whose love is better than LIFE. How cool is that? How AWESOME is that?
