Psalm Friday-Psalm 1







By the Streams of Living Water
"Psalm of the Day"Psalm 1" Psalm 1 (NKJV) 1)Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful;
2)but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law doth he meditate day and night.
3)And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4)The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5)Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6)For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.: I would rather delight in the ways of my Lord, than hang out with those who do nothing, but mock the ways of my Lord. His laws are made to help me walk my journey through this world, so I will gladly meditate upon them daily. I want to be like a beautiful tree planted by the precious rivers water, and in my season bring forth much fruit that will be pleasing to my Lords eyes. I want my life to prosper, not wither away, useless to my Lord. I do not want my leaves to be blown away, from lack of growth. Prayer: Dear Lord, may my life show evidence of growth in You always. May my heart delight in You all the days of my life. I praise You for letting my life be rooted in You. I love You with all I am. Amen

sailorcross said...

Denise,

I just read your post, and how wonderful is your prayer! I feel this exact same way--I want to be all that God wants me to be, though I fail miserably. And then God picks me up, brushes me off, puts me back on my feet and steers me in the right direction again.

Have a wonderful rest of the day!

Beth
