36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
preserve my life according to your word.
Lately I have found myself being consumed with myself and my issues. Every now and then I will be made aware of this and be consumed with guilt and shame. I've even done this to my own husband! On the day he was finished with 2 of the last finals he ever took in his college career, I was completely wrapped up in my own stresses and problems and completely forgot what a big deal that day was for him.
59 I have considered my ways
and have turned my steps to your statutes.
60 I will hasten and not delay
to obey your commands.
I may eventually make the move towards obeying what God has laid before me, but I don't always "hasten" to obey. Obedience is not something that comes easy for me and definitely something I could work on! I know that even now God is testing my patience and obedience towards Him and I struggle everyday with this. Sometimes I am stubborn and restless, but He always gets me one way or the other ;)
