Psalm 1: The Fruitful Tree

Bloganuary Prompt

Describe yourself as a tree.

Blessed am I, as I do not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,but my delight is in the law of the Lord, and I meditate on his law day and night.

I am like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither - whatever I do prospers

Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

(Paraphrased from Psalm 1:1-6)

A tree… which yields its fruit in season. The trees look dead at the moment, because of the harsh winter, but they stand the test of time, and will bud once again. So it is with me. During the harsh winter, I will stand the test of time, as I plant myself in the Word of God, Jesus Christ; God is watching over me, and the Holy Spirit guides and comforts me.

This song was on my mind as I wrote this post, the lyrics written from Psalm 1.
