Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes;
and I will keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law
and observe it with my whole heart. -Psalm 119:33-34, ESV
-We need to ask the LORD to teach us, to give us understanding.
-Following God requires our whole heart.
This scene captivated me as I got ready for work this morning. The sunrise was stunning and my photo really does not do it justice.
When I looked out the front window our Bradford Pear was a brilliant color as the sunrise shone upon it. I wish I had a before photo to share with you. It is I snapped a photo yesterday of some of the leaves so you can kind of get an idea of the dramatic transformation.
What a perfect picture of the difference in our lives when we are being taught by the LORD. When the LORD gives us understanding as we read His word we are able to keep His word and to live it out because His light has illuminated it for us. The change that takes place when we allow God to renew our minds is as dramatic as the wway this tree looked in my front yard this morning. On fire, lit up, and standing in the light of God's glory. All of the color came from a source outside of the tree- its leaves only relfected the colors that the sunrise washed it in and so it should be with us.
Grace, Peace, and Mercy,
I am a woman with a Mary heart and these are my musings as I read and study God's Word
