Date Published: September 19, 2023

Publisher: Lucid Books



Do you desire the delight and joy described in the Bible, but find it elusive? Do you find yourself struggling to move from obligation to heartfelt desire? Do you desire more than information, but deep transformation? If so, this book is for you. Psalm 119 is a prayer to God for all of these things, and a personal answer from the Lord Himself. The infinitely perfect God of the universe draws near to perfect those who walk in His law, observe His testimonies, and seek Him with all their heart. How does He do this? He provides the knowledge, understanding, desire, ability, and delight; He initiates, sustains, and completes it all. This devotional commentary is a companion and a tour guide to help you toward a growing realization of the incalculable treasure that God in His mercy has placed before you in His word. You will be blessed beyond measure as you experience God’s presence as He speaks personally and powerfully to you by His perfect Word.


Interview with Mark Daniel Twombly

    What is your schedule like when you’re writing a book?

    I’m not a full time writer! Vocationally I am a project management consultant, which keeps me plenty busy. So in one sense I am writing all the time since communicating through writing is a large part of my vocation. Personally I journal extensively every day, and the book I have published, and another one I am working on, come out of that journaling experience. My ideas are generated from the Bible and from the many interactions I have with people throughout the day.

    Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

    In this age of social media and a heavily politicized atmosphere, I have considered it to protect my privacy and my family. At this point I’ve decided against it because I value transparency and the opportunity for people who know me to promote my work.

    Have you ever gotten reader’s block?

    If what is meant here is ‘reader’s’ block, yes. There is much more that I want to read than I have time to read, so that indecision slows me down sometimes until I prioritize my book list. I regularly receive recommendations from people that impacts that list!

    If what is meant is ‘writer’s’ block, I have not experienced much of that, since I rely on writing to process the thoughts of my active mind. That said, I have never been under timeline pressure to produce a manuscript, so that may change.

    Does your family support your career as a writer?

    Yes! I would not have published my first book if it weren’t for the encouragement of my wife Betty.

    How many hours a day do you write?

    I write 1-2 hours daily.

    If you could invite any three people for dinner, whom would you invite?

    John MacArthur, Jordan Peterson, Elon Musk.

    Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?

    I am a recovering perfectionist and a natural pessimist, but am transforming into a realist and yet an optimist!

    Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

    More original. What people want and what they need are often not the same thing, and I know this is true of me. I have no desire to participate in what is so often the echo chamber of modern media. I desire to provide content that is utterly truthful, practical, accessible, and gets to the heart of what is needed for personal transformation.

    How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

    Great question. I am not very good at celebrating, and my mind is often focused on the next thing I am working on. That said, I do take some time to read it and enjoy the content. I write in such a way that it would be something I would find accessible, enjoyable, and transformative.

    If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be?

    John MacArthur
