The words of Psalm 19 keep coming back to me.
Is it because I have come before God in the mornings before dawn and followed the rising of the sun?
Is it because I need a warning against my prideful sins?
Is it because I seek to know the spring of living waters that brings life to the soul?
I pray that I may know Him and keep His commands - "Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments." (I John 2:3)

Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;
       And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
       And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language
       Where their voice is not heard.

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;
       The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
       The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
      The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
      Yea, than much fine gold;
      Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
      And in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can understand his errors?
      Cleanse me from secret faults.
Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins;
      Let them not have dominion over me.
      Then I shall be blameless,
      And I shall be innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
      Be acceptable in Your sight,
      O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.
