In reading Psalm 116 yesterday I was struck by the first two verses, "I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live." The truly amazing thing to me is that the psalmist describes an act of grace (God's listening and responding to him) and then his heart's response to, "call on him as long as I live."
"As long as I live" is a long time! God's grace to me in Jesus makes me want to be in close relationship (calling on him) for all of my days. May He make these words true in me.
