Christological Paraphrase of Psalm 1

"Blessed are you when you trust in the justice of God rather than scheming with evil men. Blessed are you when you pick up your cross rather than taking the easy road. Blessed are you when you join the lowly at my table rather than sitting with those who are 'too big to fail.'

Blessed are you when my words light up your eyes and when you gnaw on them like a dog with a bone.

These words will breathe new life into you. Even as your body wastes away, your spirit will grow younger and stronger. Nothing can slow my word’s work on your heart.

But woe to evil men! They are at the mercy of the evil one who cares nothing for them.

When I return to make things right, their lives will have been a waste. Their seat at my table will remain empty.

I have not forgotten you! I see you. I am coming for you. But the way of the wicked ends in death."

Especially like the part “Nothing can slow my word’s work on your heart…”such a deep, deep breath of hope for me today. Thank you.
