"I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you."
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Let's take a moment and reflect. How are things going in our walk with the Lord? Are we spending time daily with Him and His word? Are we spending time as a family in the word? Are we teaching our children the importance hiding His word in our hearts?
My husband is teaching a series in our Sunday school on the spiritual disciplines. He has challenged us to really work on carving out time daily for quiet personal reflection, meditation, prayer over, or study of specific verses. This was really convicting to me because, as we all know, it is so easy to shift our priorities, specifically time with the Lord, because we are so "busy". We come up with excuse after excuse, but I don't want to make excuses any more. I don't want to be "too busy" for the Lord! I decided it was time to make a change, so I have built into the day specific time for me and the children to take 15 minutes of quiet time with the Lord. That is where this wonderful book I am giving away from Tommy Nelson steps up to the plate.
I love God's Word for Me Bible Storybook, because instead of rewriting Bible stories with pictures, it actually uses scripture in an accessible translation for kids to read. Anthony looks forward to reading these passages to himself during our quiet time because he loves the fact that he is reading Bible passages, not just a story version of a passage! I highly recommend this book! Sign up below to win a copy for your family!
