God, silly, That seems easy enough…but with me, nothing ever is. Well no worries, today my devotional took me to Proverbs 4:23 which talks about guarding your heart because so often our heart and our feelings control our actions. If I am guarding my heart for God, my actions should follow suit. Now this concept is easy enough, right?
God knows me too well, He knows that wasn’t enough to sway me. So what do we talk about in church today? Not giving into the enticement of sin. Proverbs 1:8-19 to be exact. It hit me in church today, almost like a ton of bricks. I am so afraid of falling back into this sin because I hadn’t yet turned it over to God. Yes, I admitted it to Him, but I kept a small little crumb. So today as the ushers were passing out communion, I prayed. I prayed for God to take my fears and to guard my heart from the temptation that seems too easy to accept.
And now, here I am, refreshed with a peace knowing that God is not going to give me a situation I cannot handle, and that through him I can overcome this. I am so relieved with this truth. And you know what, i'm not sure this could have come at a better time. It's the first day of July. I can start a new month with a new mindset. Sweet.
Oh, also this month I've decided to do the Photo a Day Instagram Challenge:
