    The psalmist express how venerable we're really are as human beings. He also describes our sinful nature and how we can't move forward w/o God's grace and mercy. I really see myself in the psalm because I need God's grace in my life. We're saved by His grace.
  • Annysia for verse 3
    This chapter is something everyone can relate to. It's hard to keep the faith going throughout our struggles and all we can do is pray that God will help us. The person speaking in this chapter seems to be aware of how sinful he is, but the fact he still tries to keep his faith is something we should emulate. Most times, we pray "just because" instead of with mindfulness. Memorized prayers become a chore, and this is why personal prayers are most important to me. When was the last time we really prayed with mindfulness, when we really spoke to God?

    I am so sorry for you, I will say a prayer for Michelle, that God will ease her pain and that she can rest in peace. She is going to a place where their is no more sickness just joy and happiness and see her heavenly father.

    Verse 4 5 one of my favourite verses I memorized. Always remind ourselves that we are as grass, and the best of us are as flowers. The grass withers away, and the flowers faded away. Anything that is looked at in the context of eternity is vanity.
  • Ms. Darkimbong khaling for verse 11
    God is holy and He chastises us by secretly and insensibly consuming our desirable state to sensitize us to repent.
  • Haizel
    This verse hit me the most, O spare me, that I may recover strenght, before I go hence and be no more. I am asking myself of what legacy will I leave when Im gone. What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits towards me? Sometimes, life demands so much from us and we tend to feel like quitting, that we cant go on any longer, but God 's promises are never fading. We just have to believe Him. He is our strenght when we are weak, he hears even our silent cries. Worry no more, pray more!
  • Marian for verse 3
    I first became aware of this "saying ", while studying for a college exam. Not knowing it 's origin. I interperted this as while I was wasting time, my energy and my creative ability were being ignored. Where life is passing by quickly, being spend in a useless manner. Where I 'm wasting my time on things that are not important and of no value. Here I am now, decades later looking up the meaning, and finding I was completely wrong in my interpertation.

  • Darrell

    james witch deals with the mouth
    but the lord lead me to this because
    sometimes saints& sinners can shoot ya with
    with their mouths on the phone.when you find out don't explode let the lord keep your mouth
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 12
    This prayer of David is just to show us, that before the Lord we are strangers in this world, and pilgrims just like our fathers. As we cry out to God to hear us, and to help us remember that our life is but a hand breathe, and will soon pass. We need wisdom to know our end, so that we will apply our heart to do the will of God. We are not just here to heap up riches, but we need to sow seeds in the lives of others for Christ. Just as Paul said Lord I want to know you, in the power of your resurrection, the fellowship of your suffering, being made in the likeness of your death, so that I could inherit the resurrection from the dead. God will hear our prayer, and grant that we will have a reward at the end of our journey.

    Lord make me to know mine end,and the measure of my days..Got to love This verse
  • Richard for verse 3
    For us to meditate on our thoughts. To let them build inside us so we can come to our Lord and let our request be known.g
  • Gary
    Meditation on the brevity of life is a wonderful tool to help the Saint separate from that which is temporary in order to enter, through prayer, into that which is eternal. It is a loving God who makes our fallen state a mere handbreadth.
