    Love this chapter. I can sing some of these verses.

    "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living." The"land of the living", in a world of people dead in trespasses and sins. Sounds to me like witnessing the grace and mercy of God in the lives of other believers,becomes our expectation that the same God we see in the lives of others, is with us also, and our turn for his attention is always near.
