This is no small matter for you; it's your life.
truly, lord, your word is no small matter for us, it's nothing that we could ignore or set aside for something else or take lightly, no. we keep our hearts raw towards it, we keep our hearts in tune and sensitive to it, we keep ourselves open and pliable and teachable and always in check with it, we yield our spirit and will to it, it's our lifeline, it's our life! your word is what brought us into being, your word is what spoke us into existence, it's what keeps us alive, and it's what keeps us with you! something that outlives us, that's as eternal and powerful as you. oh truly what a mighty God we serve!
