Good morning / good evening or good afternoon

i like the way we have become so impatient in our instant world that taking the time to step back and take a look at our lives and what we do, our motives and where we draw our motives and judgment for our actions from. To me rather disgusting.

i have not posted for 9 days and the visitors to the sight has dropped by 34%, and have been told to “mind your own business”, have been told “you have no right to accuse my friends” and those were the nice things, and i have done nether to anyone

But for those who are still here let’s move forward

Psalms 1,b
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
 
If you have taken the time to reflect on my last post and have made the evaluation of those you are hanging with, those who you are taking advice from, and have made the choice to seek out those who would be a better influence in your walk.
 
We are not to stand in the path of sinners;
Simple Do not follow in the ways of sinners, Ones who breaks the law or violates the commands of the Lord
 
We are not to set in the seat of scoffers;
ridicule · mock · jeer at · scoff at · jibe at · make fun of · poke fun at · laugh at · hold up to ridicule · pillory · disdain · disparage · denigrate · pooh-pooh · dismiss · slight · detract from · sneer at · scorn · pour/heap scorn on · taunt · insult · torment · treat with contempt · vilify · lampoon · satirize · knock · take the mickey out of · poke at · flout
if these are the attributes of your life you have set in the seat of the scoffers and it is time to find a new chair
 
Psalms 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
 
What do you spend your time doing?
Are you so wrapped up in the things of this world, movies, music, sports, parties, work that you do not take or have the time spend with the Lord, learning His laws and ways, what do you spend your hours thinking about all the things above or the things of the Lord.
 
Life is only complicated when we do not spend our days with the Lord in His word.
 
Over the next few days keep track of what you are thinking and speaking through out your day, be aware of your first thought in the morning when you wake and your last thought at night as you lay your head down to sleep, this will give you a good indication of where you spend your time and who with.
 
be at peace with Father God and you will be at peace

Psalms1:1-6
¶ How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, (The distressing, mischievous, mean, evil, depraved, immoral, sinful, ungodly)
Who do you take direction from in your life?
Who influents the way you evaluate things?
 
i don’t know where you live, but in this country it seems that most take their direction from the actor’s, athletes, teachers, and those who we fell the need to impress.
 
Unless these people are proclaiming the forgiveness and salvation of Christ Jesus you most likely are unaware that you are being led astray satin is subtle in the way he leads you from the ways of the Lord.
 
When you are with someone does your spirit fell distressed? Are the people you are around mischievous?
 
Mischievous:

a person, who’s behavior causing or shows a fondness for causing trouble in a playful way. Someone who would be considered naughty, bad, badly behaved, misbehaving, disobedient, troublesome, vexatious, full of mischief, untrustworthy, dishonest, delinquent, playful, teasing, one who is intent on causing or intended to cause harm or trouble. Someone who make allegation for which there is not a shred of evidence Are the people you hang with malicious, hostile, spiteful, bitter, evil-intentioned · ill-natured, vindictive, vengeful, hurtful, destructive, cruel, unkind, slanderous, bitchy

 
Take the long list above and compare the people you listen to for advice, the ones you go to for direction, the ones you hang out with, if they match up with any of these relies you are in the wrong place taking input from the wrong source.

Reed this slowly let the words penetrate your heart and soil. Reed this every day for a week, and each time you do so ask the Lord to give you insight, understanding and wisdom, deed this at least once a day for a week two or three times would even be better.
 
Psalms 1 The Contrasted between a righteous life and a Wicked
 
1:1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
 
1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
 
1:3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.
 
1:4 The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
 
1:5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
 
1:6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.
 
Meditate on these words for a few days then ill be back

When out walking in the wilderness it is amazing what you can come across, and if you spend a month in the wilderness it is amazing how your thoughts can change.
 
Take a month and go to the most remote place you know and leave your cell phone behind only take a ax, hatchet, a bow saw, fix blade knife, a 10’ x 20’ tarp, a 8’ x 10’ tarp, 200’ of cord, a one or two person tent, five to seven pair of socks and underwear, a towel and wash cloth, three or four different types of fire starter, a small pot to cook in and a 6’ cast iron frying pan, a life straw for clean safe drinking water, a stainless steel cup, a sleeping bag, two changes of clothing, needle and thread, a first aid kit, at least 34 high energy bars, 10 lbs. dried fruit, 10 lbs. dried vegetables, 10 lbs. dried meet, 1 lb. salt, peppermint oil, a head lamp, flash light, and a set of extra batteries for both, a compass and map.
 
{Yes this is more weight than you are going to pack on your back out in to the wilderness at one time, so make two trips.}
 
Take paper, and a couple pens and pencils, a journal book, and most important your Bible
 
Find a place close to running water out of the flood zone clean up the ground make a fire pit and set up your camp, once you have accomplished all that eat something than take your paper, journal book, pens and pencils and for 30 minutes and set down be still and be quiet, listen to the sounds around you, and ask the Lord your God to direct your path, ask Him over the next 30 days to speak to you and give you direction, Ask the Lord for wisdom and understanding, then open your bible to Psalms one and read, now read it aging slowly taking in each word and phrase, now read it aging stopping after each statement and think about your life how does your life compare to what is being said.
 
Wright down what the Lord shows you
Exsample:
Psalms 1:1
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
 
(A). Who do I listen to? Who do I get my direction from?
(B). Who do I spend my time with?
(C). Do I spend my time and take counsel from the wicked, from the sinners and scoffers. Those who mock, ridicule and put others down, those who are scorners of others
1. Who are these people in my life
a.
b.
c.
and so on
 
Be honest with yourself and with God for He already knows but your eyes need to be open so you can see who you are truly listening to and following. Be honest with yourself.



Hodgepenny

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father as you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
