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, but whose delight is in the word of the Lord, and who meditates on his word day and night. 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 1:1-3
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me to turn off the TV whenever I realize that I am sitting with mockers. Give me a Bible verse every day on which to meditate. Speak to me from your world so my own loneliness doesn't drive me to seek the company of empty thinkers. I want the strength of your word holding up my brain when the hard times come so I can prosper and bear fruit for others even though I must suffer for a little while. Give me yourself through the word you plant in my heart.
