Do you find yourself bristling at the thought of being Torah observant? I understand. Psalm 116:11
Go back and look at Psalm 116:5b
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yes, our God is compassionate.This is not a salvation issue. Now go back to 116:2b
Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.Call on the Name of YHVH. Ask Him and no one else about this issue.
Psalm 116:12-19 seems to be all about the falk of faith, of being a woman (or man) for whom trust is no longer an idea or theory. It is simply something we do. We've learne d the secret of asking "in Jesus Name" --I shall lift up the cup of Y'shua Jesus) and call upon the Name of YHVH.
I shall lift up the cup of Salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. Psalm 116:13
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father. "And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. John 14:12-15We have come to know that The Way of Life is not easy but steep and narrow. We know the freedom of being a slave whose only bonds are the Lof of God through Y'shua (Jesus).
O LORD, surely I am Thy servant, I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmaid, Thou hast loosed my bonds. Psalm 116:16We happily give Thanksgiving... in all things and for all things, remembering that we are part of a body of believers... The body of our own King Y'shua Jesus.

Psalm Of The DayPsalm
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of man's hands. They have mouths, but they cannot speak; they have eyes, but they cannot see; They have ears, but they cannot hear; they have noses, but they cannot smell; They have hands, but they cannot feel; they have feet, but they cannot walk; they cannot make a sound with their throat. Those who make them will become like them, everyone who trusts in them. Psalm 115:4-8 nas
Everything Oden does is the work of a man's hand.... except for one thing, he is very good at stealing the love in our heart for Y'shua (Jesus). I want to cry every time a child looks with loving expectation for Santa's sleigh the way we should be looking for the soon return of Y'shua. I watched with agony as a parent recorded their little boy with his big, moist eyes proclaim his love for Santa. Heartbreak. No matter what we say, it turns out that Jesus is NOT the reason for the season.

"I would quickly subdue their enemies, and turn My hand against their adversaries. "Those who hate the LORD would pretend obedience to Him; and their time of punishment would be forever. Psalm 81:14-16 nas
He defeats what seems to defeat you. What, you may wonder, is it that God wants us to do so that we can walk in victory? "The joy of the LORD is our strength, so "sing for joy" 81:1. Sing loud. You say you're not feeling it? You don't have to feel it, just do it. Turn on praise music and sing along. God himself will give you the "feelings" all you have to do is obey. Start singing! He has even brought me there through tears.
