THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
We have a saying down here in Louisiana that seems to apply to everything.
"Tune in" to this conversation.
Person one, "Ole Joe fell off the porch and broke his leg."
Person two, "Bless his heart."
Person one, "Miss Janie has been having a difficult time taking care of him."
Person two, "Bless her heart."
Seems like blessing the heart is the cure for all ills!
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Yes, when Jesus speaks to the heart it is truly blessed!
It is also true that when you are facing difficult circumstances,
reading God's Word (and letting Him speak to your heart) takes away the pain.
My friend, Beth C. Whittington, wrote a book called:
When You Find Yourself In The Belly Of A Whale.
(You can find it at Amazon.com)
The book is a series of devotions written while Beth was battling cancer.
These descriptive devotions show that when we focus on God's Word,
the heart is truly blessed!
The Word of God, used by the Spirit of God, speaks to our hearts!
They bring a breath of fresh air to our spirits, and we experience new life in our souls!
How do YOU handle stress, difficulty, pain, anxiety, fear?
1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
When we study the Word of God, it becomes a "lamp" to warm us;
and a "light" to guide us. (Psalm 119:105)
When you're facing difficult times, get alone and study God's Word.
He will "bless your heart!"
