joy in pressure and stress

I've been going through Psalm 119 in the mornings, and it's become one of my favorite Psalms. It presents such a unique relationship between man and his Creator. The psalmist (most likely Ezra or David) pours out his love for God in verse and says repeatedly, "I love you so much that I am willingly subservient to Your commands; they are life to me." (that's my paraphrase of the whole chapter)

I find this verse to give a particularly fresh perspective in today's fast-paced, worry-filled culture:

As pressure and stress bear down on me,
I find joy in your commands.
Psalm 119:143 (NLT)
