    Our Walk in God we must be faithful and truthful. God is Love and his mercy is so Awesome. We stray off the path that God has made for us at times. What does God grace and mercy do, led us right back to his direct path.

    This psalm has given me conformation in my life that finally the things I thought I could not let go are already gone. For me mercy and truth have met in my life. I no longer have to hid other people's sickness. And it's wonderful. I have allowed Gods righteousness and peace to kiss me and I will forever embrace him.
