The Two Ways

Psalm 1

How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path of sinners, or join a group of mockers!  Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night.

This is one of my favorite Psalms.  It is very straight and to the point and yet it is the most hard to follow in today’s world.  I myself have very often found myself on the wrong side, taking the wrong path and lose my way.

I recently have moved and to be honest it has not been easy.  I loved where we were, I loved the people, the familiar surroundings and my home.  It has been very very difficult for me.  I recently had to ask a dear friend for help.  The thing was, I knew the answer, sometimes we just need to be told.  In my issues with changes, which is difficult for me, his advice was  The Psalms.  I smiled and as soon as I turned to it I found the first, which I said is my favorite.

My happiness and content is found only in the Lord’s instruction.  When problem’s arise or you don’t know what to do, don’t follow the advice of the wicked, or the path of sinners.  Day and night follow the Lord.

Thank you Marshall.
