On My Heart


God has always placed certain things on my heart during different times in my life and right now I feel like he's telling me to look at what I already know. Sometimes I ask questions that have simple answers. Answers that are right in front of my eyes if I look around and take in the simple joys of life. We, as humans, tend to look so hard for something not in sight that we have a hard time seeing the things that are already in front of us, myself included.

•The problem can always be solved with love.
And true love means loving someone during their most unlovable moments. When my boys fight and cry and leave the house looking like the aftermath of a tropical storm, I have to smile because God has entrusted me with molding their lives.

Today I will be slow to speak and eager to listen.

Love the verse--sometimes God speaks to me about the opposite. I need to talk more. I carry on a running conversation with myself so don't feel the need to talk aloud. Unfortunately this doesn't always please God and He urges me to open myself up to those around me. Isn't it great that God attends to us differntly--and yet the same?!!
