How have we gotten so wrapped up in the negativity of the day when we carry within us the Hope of the world?
The way to His presence is bowing low when everything within me says I need to prove how right I am.
Day 19 – What Do You Want?
I challenge you to make 2017 be a year of breakthrough faith for you, I know I am ready for the challenge – are you?
Day 7 – Be Careful Little Eyes
Psalm 119:30 NLT “The teaching of your Word gives light, so even the simple can understand.”
I get into trouble sometimes not so much because of what I do or don’t do, but more because of what I have said or maybe haven’t said. Does that happen to you? Me and my big mouth! Seems my brain is always scrambling to catch up with the trouble that my words have created. As a child, I always had something to say even if I didn’t know anything about a given subject. I have memories of being in class and the teacher asking the students for answers. Of course I had no idea what the answer would be, but I would wave my hand frantically anyway and blurt out the first thought that would come into my mind. Whenever report cards were sent home, teachers would inevitably comment, “Lea talks too much in class.” It was so difficult to be quiet! Words. They are incredibly significant. With our words we do so many things: Words create good/bad atmosphere. You know that
I’ve noticed in our daily lives that we aren’t as forgiving with one another as we are with children when they draw on the walls. We are far more prone to paint over our their drawings than we are to forgive the faults of others who have failed to make “the grade” in our opinion; after all, they drew on our walls!
Words play a critical part in our lives; with them we set the direction of our day, of our lives, and the lives of those effected by them. Words can be creative and words can be destructive.
