Have you heard that phrase? In God’s Word
If so, what does it mean to you? To me, it means living in His word, breathing in His word, hearing His word, writing His word, listening to His word.
By doing all those things, together or separately, I find that I am actually taking in His word.
I’ve always been of the philosophy : Garbage in, Garbage out
Meaning ~ if I surround myself or constantly hear negative talk, cursing, gossip, derogatory talk or such; then I will begin to talk, speak, and do the same.
However, if I spend time researching and studying the bible, teaching about His word, writing His word, living by His word, living out what He teaches us to do, it strengthens me. Doing so, builds my faith, firms my foundation.
I have found that where I would read chapter and verse and say HUH? what does that mean; I now am having clarity. The Holy Spirit is guiding my study and providing clarity; giving me better understanding of what the chapter and verse is telling me; teaching me.
This has taken three to four years to accomplish and my learning is definitely not complete. Learning is a lifelong endeavor; as I keep trying to get C to understand. Having two weeks off over the Christmas holidays did a big number on our daily classwork discipline. Here we are 3 weeks into January and we are finally getting into a groove. Prayers work people, prayers work.
And my most, “good job, mama” moments are when my baby shows me that he gets it (ya know what I’ve been teaching) or he breaks out his bible, turns to the table of contents, searches for what he wants to share and tells me what the bible says.
My heart overflows when the Holy Spirit tells me “good job, mama, he is getting it”
When you look into Proverbs 22: 6 Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not deter from it, the same concept applies to us as adults. When you train up your mind, heart, and soul in the way it should go, it will not alter from the lighted path….. worthy thought.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
