what is hidden in your heart?



last year was a really good year for reading through the bible ... meditating on God's word ... and reading good scripturally based books ... i was being prepared for this journey that i am now on ...

this morning i woke up early, with worry wanting to control the day ... i started to pray, tell the Lord about my concerns ... and He in turn reminded me of verses that calmed those anxieties and set me resting on His promises once again ... He is so patient with me!

i've already been able to look back on these past 2 months - and see the many ways He has helped us out ...

worry is my natural nature ... resting on God's promises is my spiritual nature ...

that is why having the WORD of God in our hearts and minds is so important ... it is the true North ... our trusty compass that will NEVER steer us wrong ...

Worrying is my natural state, too. Thank goodness for comforting words that can be found to help us.

fred ... you bet ... reading the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew is one of my favourites!

It feels so good to eat well and exercise, but it feels even better when our spirit if fed the right things and we exercise the fruit of the Spirit daily. When you're well equipped to take on the day, its evident what you've been feeding your soul.

darlene ... i was glad that i had put "good things" down in the well of my soul - when i needed to draw on it, the Lord brought them to mind ... it is a daily adventure to keep my patience with a sometimes grumpy, ailing husband, think of the 100 things to do for moving and pack as well ... but the Lord has supplied at every turn ... ...

Worry only gives you worry lines.
but..

The Lord gives grace and glory.
He will not deny his good things
to those who walk in purity.
Psalm 84:11

It's good indeed to keep His word in your heart.

Peace and Love :)
