Commitment Day 9

Memory in the Mind and the Heart

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I was planning to learn a verse by heart. I believe the ability to recall verses is so important. It can make the biggest difference in your mind frame, in reaching out to others, in comfort, healing, and guidance.

Scripture speaks to keeping Christ's word in our heart too!
"Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You."  Psalm 119:11

Growing up with family and friends who know Christ was a blessing. A somewhat downside at time was always hearing about memorization of verses. I believe scripture speaks to knowing verses! I have done an inadequate job of learning verses by heart.

So, I am committing to learning verses. I think to begin I will learn a verse at a time. I hope it will become a verse a week, but I am not sure my mind is sharp enough to start that right away.

How do you hide His word in your heart?

If I had the world’s attention even for just one day… I’d ask them to rise early and to pray. We would pray for each one who does not yet know Him. We would pray for those who have found Him but have gone astray. We’ll pray for those who are down trodden that they may not know He will carry them. We’d pray for those who know Him but are going to be tried today. (Tried in ways that will tempt t…

Lines in the Sand

We draw these imaginary lines in the sand… Then, the tide comes and we wonder why we must start again… We build our castle of sand and hope it stands… Then, the tide comes and we are displeased we must build again… We make our own plans as we dream on the shore, Then, the sun sets and we wish for more.
We wish for more time to enjoy the day. We wish our lines in the sand would stay. We wish our castles could be bigger and stronger. We wish our plans would happen now and not take any longer.

We rise the next day and do all of this again.
We work to maintain, a new way we never entertain. We start each day as a new beginning. Always wishing for a new ending.
Yet, we continue to draw our lines in the sand. We build our temp…
