I have signs all through my house that say things like, "Believe," "Faith is not believing God can but knowing that He will," and on and on......
But truly, I can read these signs and then worry.
I can read these signs and then doubt.
As I was reading this morning in Jeremiah, I realized there is only one place that I can place God's Words or thoughts about God that are going to change me from the inside out.
Jeremiah 31:33 says,
"I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their heart. I will be their God, and they will be my people."
As a mom, I want my kids to remember things I've taught them all through their life.
More than that, I want my kids to remember things they learned from church, church camp, youth group, mission trips, and all the other places they went where God's Words were taught.
Today, I'm praying that God's instructions are being written deeply in the hearts of all of my children.
And I'm praying they are being written daily on my own heart and on yours.
The only way this happens is if we choose to read His Word and hide it in our hearts.
"His Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Him."
I remember saying this at VBS as a young girl every single night in opening services.
Little did I know as a small child just how powerful those words would be even today at the age of 47.
I am so thankful for God's Words, and I'm praying fervently today that the Words I have hidden from it will continually change me into the person God wants me to be.
And I'm praying the same for my children and for all of you.
Have a happy Tuesday,
