It’s often said that what comes out of your mouth is what is in your heart. Probably why the Psalmist was directed to ‘hide God’s word in his heart’. It keeps us grounded. I admit, I don’t read enough of God’s Word. I purposed to read it all the way through in August of 2012. Right now, I’m 84.2% through it. I didn’t do it in a year but I will finish it soon. I’m reading chronologically so I’m in the new testament now… piece. of. cake. compared to the last year of the old testament!!
Anyway, here’s my thankful picture of the day…
My youngest, practicing his Awana verses on the fridge. He writes them in dry erase marker then erases a word or two at a time til he gets it. It’s frustrating for him because his brother reads a verse once or twice and it’s in his head. I think God gave this one, though, a special gift for understanding what he’s memorizing. He gets it and is able to apply it. Both my boys are so different but both are so affected by God’s Word. They know it’s living inside them and someday, they will be able to pull verses out of their heads effortlessly when they need them most. I’m so happy my kids are learning to dig into God’s word at a young age. I’m thankful for our ministry at church.
Keep is Simple,
