Psalm 119 - LAMEDH (Hebrew Alphabet)

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119LAMEDH_zps331nimyb.jpg
LAMEDH - Psalm 119: 89-96

The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119.  If you turn to Psalm 119 in your Bible, you will notice that there is a strange word every 8 verses.  These "strange" words are the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.  David wrote this chapter in an acrostic pattern and every letter of the alphabet is followed by 8 verses.  It is a chapter full of praise and worship.  I thought it would be fun to study Psalm 119 by summarizing each alphabetic section in an acrostic format.

I did not know anything about the Hebrew language, so I did a little research.  The Hebrew language is written from the right to the left - opposite of the English language.  There are 22 letters to the Hebrew alphabet.  Today we continue studying with the twelfth letter
LAMEDH.
I am also NOT a poet, so I had to research what an acrostic pattern meant.
An Acrostic Poem - is a poem where certain letters in each line spell out a word or phrase.
Example below.
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119_zpszhagaoxw.jpg

LAMEDH - O Lord, your word is Amazing, Magnificent & Eternal;  your laws endure to this Day & stand firm in the Heavens.

The featured verses that we are studying today are wonderfully full of praise and worship detailing God's awesomeness.  The key word to me is "boundless" - let's define that word (taken from an online dictionary):

Boundless - having no boundaries, vast, limitless, endless, fathomless, immeasurable, infinite 

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119LAMEDH2_zpsmvxani3u.jpg

Let's detail David's description of God's awesomeness:

ETERNAL

"..God's Word is eternal" (verse 89)

Eternal definition - lasting or existing forever.


FAITHFULNESS through ALL GENERATIONS

"Your faithfulness continues through all generations;  you established the earth and it endures.(verse 90)

"All generations" means as long as there is life on this earth.




ENDURES to this day

"..your laws endure to this day" (verse 91)

All through history - to date.  Read this verse tomorrow and God's laws endure to tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that etc.




DELIGHT

"If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction" (verse 92)

Delight definition - great pleasure, happiness, joy, gladness.



My Life is Renewed

"I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have renewed my life." 
(verse 93)

Renew - to make new (Spiritually), to restore to perfection, regenerate, restore





Praising God for His awesomeness and following His laws will keep us safe for eternity.

"Dwarf" Evening Sun Mix Sunflower - Part#1

"Dwarf" Evening Sun Mix Sunflower - Part#1

This is the ninth year showcasing sunflower varieties grown in my garden.  Today we continue the Sunflower Series of 2019.

I bought 2 seed packets from two different places and ended up buying seeds that were named the same!  I say "named the same" and NOT "the same" because you will see how different they are.  However, I decided to split these pictures into 3 different posts: 
1.  "Tall" Evening Sun (click HERE to view)
2.  "Dwarf" Evening Sun Mixture - Part#1 (this post )
3.  Part#2 - "Dwarf" Evening Sun Mixture (click HERE to view)

The "dwarf" version (as I call it) is almost half the height of the "tall" version.  Also, the color variance in the dwarf variety is immense!  When they say "mixture" they weren't kidding!


ENJOY the following pictures!

All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.
