The scriptures above really made me stop and pause this morning to ponder how I handle and live out what I have been given. A lot of the time I feel like I am the person that hears the Word and lets the cares of the world and desires for other things enter in my heart and choke out the truth, therefore I am unfruitful. That concerns me and helps me to examine what my life looks like and what the truth of it is. Is my light shining? Am I bearing fruit?
This is why I need to be in the Word daily. I am so self centered. If I don't read these truths daily then I don't even think much about who I should be before God and the cares of the day crowd Him out.
So thankful for the Word.
I love this instagram post that came across my feed a few days ago. Like Aaron Ivey says, "WHAT A PRAYER! Take a risk and pray it with me."
