 Psalm 119:11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Have you ever wondered how are we supposed to hide the word in our hearts?

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth: but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Here are some ways I personally hide scripture in my heart...

  • Pray before I begin.
  • Read at least 1 chapter in the bible daily.
  • Read commentary to go with the chapter. I personally like to use the Easy to Read Bible sometimes as well, on
  • Take notes and highlight verses that I want to remember quickly.
  • Bible Journal scripture. For those of you who don't know what bible journaling is, it's where you illustrate verses. I have been challenging myself to journal at least1 verse per chapter I read. As you can see above I haven't finished today's journal entry nor am I an artist. But, it's fun.
  • Write verses
  • Memorize a verse.
  • Think about the scriptures read throughout the day and how they can be applied to my life.

 Do you have a special way you hide the word of God in your heart?

May God Bless you on your journey.

My Protector.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

It's been over a year since my last post. Lots of thing have happened since then. November 13,2014 we got hired as janitors. I thought that was going to change things in our lives. It has but, what we want isn't always what's best. A few weeks ago we filled out papers to see if we were approved for a home loan. Tony and I both prayed that if it was God's will let everything work out. If not, then let something prevent us from signing anymore papers. We got the call saying we were approved but, the down payment would have to everything we had. With no money left we couldn't have bought the items we needed to go in the home. Later, I found out the company we were going to get the loan from had bad reputation for cheating people out of their home and money. Whew! That was a close one. 

Several times God has protected us from the devils schemes. I take him at his word that he will never leave nor forsake us. Besides, he's our Protector.

May God Bless you on your journey.
