A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Hello, Journey lovers! My name is Kristen Reed. I serve in  Reclaimed, Watermark's anti-sex-trafficking ministry, and in re:generation, our recovery ministry. Despite being an account/project manager, writing is my true passion, and I’ve written seven books as a result. So, I took a literary/poetic approach to my devotional. In this alphabetic acrostic psalm, there is one stanza for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet (Mem for verses 97-104), and each line of the stanza begins with that letter. Inspired by that acrostic format, the first letter of each line of today's devotional spells out the English alphabet. Enjoy!

TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LETTER "MEM" FOR "MEMORABLE QUIET TIME"

Psalm 119:97-104

Mem

97 Oh how I love your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
98 Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies,
for it is ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers,
for your testimonies are my meditation.
100 I understand more than the aged, [1]
for I keep your precepts.
101 I hold back my feet from every evil way,
in order to keep your word.
102 I do not turn aside from your rules,
for you have taught me.
103 How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 Through your precepts I get understanding;
therefore I hate every false way. (ESV)
