GUEST Blog Friday

She is a very dear friend of mine who I have great respect for.
I pray you are encouraged by her honest and powerful message.
Thanks to several key people and organizations that God placed into my life I became more convinced that the Bible really held the words of God.
I was deeply impacted by various scriptures and passages that stuck in my heart ready for just the right moment to be called to my memory.
It was a sweet time for the Lord and me.
In my precious spare moments I very rarely sit down to soak in the words of God or to pray.
If you want to know the truth, I run to my couch, my DVR, my stash of dark chocolate, Dr. Phil, Facebook, a novel, you get the idea.
Desperate for some down time or relaxation I neglect the One who can give me true rest.
When it’s typed out there so plainly it’s crazy to think of what I am choosing over the Giver of ever-lasting life.
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Psalm 119 speaks to this:
that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, Lord;
teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.
And Psalm 19:
and all of them are righteous.
than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb
