Psalm 1:1-3 - Really Enjoy the Piano.

Thought/Prayer:  Topics:  2 at end.

“Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.”

This morning I want to play the piano.  I want to run through the songs I’ll play at the senior center tomorrow, for the singing time.  But actually, I’m not playing the piano this morning.  Not that practicing isn’t a good thing.  It is.

But there’s a better—no, a best thing—I must do this morning; grab my Bible, open it and read it.  Already, as I write this, something has come up that will cut short my time this morning by a couple of hours.  If I had not determined to practice my faith by reading from the faith-building book, I would not be able to fulfill the scripture, Psalm 143:8, “Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.”  Neither would I “medicate day and night” as in the scripture above.

Yes, let me practice, if you will, my spirituality – then I’ll really enjoy time at the piano.  May all who speak for LIFE today be encouraged by making time to spend with God in his Word.
