Psalm 1, Part 1

PSALM 1:1

Yesterday (November 18, 2020), I started to read, meditate, journal, and pray through Psalm 1:1.

And I can tell I need to hang out here for a while. So I will.


THIS MORNING

I love how God works.

Every morning, my husband and I read the Verses of the Day from four different sources.

Guess what one was for this morning? Psalm 1:1-2.

Thank You, Lord. What a blessing.

I am on track.

Font Differences in Blog Posts

Please forgive the font differences in my blog posts. I have not been able to figure out how to correct them yet. (Sigh.)

Years in the Making (Psalms)

 


AN INTRODUCTION
Earlier this morning, I started working on a new journaling project. More specifically, it's a new personal Bible and Prayer Journaling Project. 

This is the title that I am giving it so far:

Meditating on the Psalms Day and Night

I have wanted to pray and journal through the Book of Psalms for decades now and I think it's finally time for me to do so. 

LUKE 24:44
This is one of the reasons why it is so important to look a look at the Psalms.
Here is a link so you can look at it if you like: https://www.studylight.org

PSALM 1:1-1:3
This is a major reason why I want to go through the Psalms.

A HYMNAL AND PRAYER BOOK
Another reason why I want to go through the Psalms is because the book is called:
~ The Hymnal of the Bible
~ A Prayer Book (Book of Prayer)

A FAVORITE
The main reason why I want to go through the Book of Psalms is because it's always been a favorite.

​NOVEMBER 18, 2020, WEDNESDAY: THE START DATE
This is the start date of this project. ​

43 Days

There are 43 days left in the year 2020.

JOURNALING PROMPTS OR QUESTIONS:
~ What are your thoughts that there are only 43 days left in 2020?
~ What do you have planned for the rest of the year?
~ What do you hope to accomplish with the rest of the year?
~ How do you want to choose to finish the year in the absolute best way possible? What does that look like?

New Title

This is the new title for what I am praying through and journaling.

Praying Through the Psalms

I have wanted to prayer journal slowly through the Book of Psalms for years now. It looks like this is the day I begin, with the Lord, to dive deep and thoroughly into the prayer book, and hymnal, of the Bible.

Care to join me on the journey?

Prayer Journaling Through the Bible

I am on Day 3 of 365 of prayer journaling through the Bible as of today. 

I am taking my time and trying to fully take in what I read and pray it through.

Prayer: You Are More Than Enough, Lord

You are enough, Lord. 

I do not need anything else.

I know this is true. 

You are enough, Father God. Would You please help me remember it and live this truth fully every moment today, tomorrow, and the days thereafter? 

You are more than enough, Lord. You are my everything.

I want to finish this year strong and live a life of meaning: Reading, journaling, and praying through the Bible as a plan and as a solution

While I may not be able to control anything of the events of the year 2020 or 2021, I do have control of my reaction to each. And since I can control my reaction to 2020 and 2021, I want to finish 2020 strong and begin and live 2021 strong and live a life of meaning and purpose.

How can I live a life of meaning and purpose? It is through living with eternity in mind, not through focusing on anything of this world. It is through living Colossians 3:1-2; John 15:1-I7; Romans 8; Psalm 1, Philippians 4:4-13; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, etc.

I cannot control anything, other than my reaction to things.

The best life I can live is one centered on the Lord and on His Word (The Holy Bible).

Period.

So the best way I can finish this year, begin the next year, and live the next year is through living in the manner that God wants me to live and He tells me/us in the Bible.

I will read, journal, and pray through the Bible, as a plan and as a solution, to living the best and strongest way possible, for the rest of 2020 and continue to do so in 2021. Everything in my life should center on this first and foremost. This is the priority.

Care to join me?

When we grumble, complain, judge, and criticize, are we living a life of purpose and meaning?

When we grumble, complain, judge, and criticize, it means we have gotten our eyes off of the important and off what matters. Remaining in You (Lord) and in the Holy Bible, as John 15 tells us, is what we are to focus on. If we are grumbling, complaining, judging, and/or criticizing, then we are not remaining in Your and in your Word.

How much better, and more meaningful, would our lives be if we realized what we have a problem with really does not matter at all in the grand scheme of things?

Does it help when we grumble, complain, judge, or criticize? Does it make our life, or that of another's, better, purposeful, or more meaningful?

When we get our eyes off of what matters, You and the Bible, we think and do some crazy things.

When we remain in You, Father God, and focus our minds on You and the Bible, we can see things more clearly and focus on the eternal and not on the temporal things of this world. This is when we live a life of purpose. This is when we live a life of meaning.
