We Become Who We Hang Around-WOW Rewind-from Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chickilt Power and thanks for stopping by for a little break. We are doing a WOW rewind and comparing where we were then, when we committed these words of wisdom to memory, to where we are now in our lives. Grab your coffee and come on in.

So this time last year, it was becoming obvious to me that I needed more than one dose of quiet time with Him and I wanted to try and end my day with a little something from His word, or prayer with my husband, or just praying by myself and so the WOW for last February was truly helpful in confirming the need to not only start my day with him, but to end my day with Him.

As I re-read the WOW from last year, and the verse, I have to tell you, I’m in a different place and it is speaking a different message to me, which is what affirms that the Scriptures are God-breathed, truly alive because they meet us right where we are at in our lives.

Before I tell you what it’s speaking to me now, let me rewind and give you the WOW: Psalm 1:1-3: Blessed is _________ (your name), who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly (doesn’t hang around with the wrong crowd) nor stands in the path of the sinners, (doesn’t deliberately put herself in temptation’s way and tries to stay clear of it) nor sits in the seat of the scornful, (does not have a critical, judging attitude toward others), but his/her delight is in the law of the Lord (His Word) and in His law he/she meditates day and night. (There it is, the prescription, meditating on His word two times a day!)

Now here comes the result, aka side effect of taking this prescription twice daily: He/she shall be like a tree planted by the river of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever he/she does shall prosper. (In other words, just as a tree soaks up water and bears much fruit, when we soak in His word, we too will bear much fruit and even when the storms of life hit, we will stand in victory and be blessed beyond comprehension!

Oh, how I love His promises. Join me tomorrow and I’ll explain what I mean by you become who you hang out with, which is what these words of wisdom are speaking to me now.

Wowed by Him,

Evinda
