Psalm 40 is a Psalm of Gratitude

Duties To God -- PRAYER -- In Humility & Patience
Verse 2 -- He brought me up also out of "an" horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock; and "established" my goings.
Blessedness of The New Life -- Assurance of the Divine Favour
"an" -- a pit of noise
"established" -- Psalm 37:23

I freely share book reviews as well as my sunday school lesson notes with various sites/places. Any additional writing-reading(s)-teaching, etc. are by appointments unless I feel directed to do so.
Some years ago a preacher email me and wanted to refer me to help write sunday school literature for the company that he was or he had written for. He told me they will pay you but they pay slow. I told him no thank you for I did not want that type of pressure put on me and another thing I have never been to Theology or Seminary School so I decided not to take him up on his offer.
