More Than Bread Devotional for 8/1/11

28My soul melts away for sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word!  – Psalm 119:28

There is something special for me about Psalm 119.  It is primarily written as a tribute or praise to the Law (instruction) of God.  As such, it manages to seemingly touch on every area of life.  I always seem to find something that applies to my situation or circumstance when I read through this psalm.  This week I have experienced sorrow as we lost a dear brother in the Lord who touched many lives by his own life.  As we prepare to remember him and mark his passing to be with our Lord, this verse brings a reminder of comfort that God will strengthen us in these times through His Word.  May He strengthen you today.
