Monday was a crazy day for me. On Mondays I edit raw footage from Sunday’s church service, adding slides and a second camera angle into a completed video that can be watched on a website for those who were unable to attend Sunday’s service, or would like to go back and watch or take notes form the service. I love doing this! I love listening to what my foster dad has to preach about. It usually opens my heart to things I might need to change in my own life. It’s kind of like a second dose of church. His church is in California and I’m in Colorado going to a fabulous church in Loveland that has really helped to change a negative view I had of God standing with an iron staff ruling the world. I’ll dive more into how my faith has changed and evolved over the last year in another post, but basically, I prayed for my faith to change, and God more than delivered!
Anyway, with a splash pad play date set up later in the day and video editing to do along with some errands, our day was way too busy to blog about that day’s Bible verse, so I’m doing Monday and Tuesday together.
Here was Monday’s verse: Romans 12:3 “For by the grace given to me I say to every one of you: Do not think yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”
Prayer: Lord you know my heart! If anything I don’t think as highly of myself as I should. I don’t feel like I have many talents, but I do have a heart that continually wants to work on myself, learn and grow into the human you want me to be. Thank you for your unending love and grace toward me especially when I forget who I am or act in an unChristianly way, your grace rescues me from all my ugliness, it purifies me. Thank you, Lord!
Tuesday’s Verse: Jeremiah 17: 9-10 “A human heart is more dishonest than anything else. It can’t be healed. Who can understand it? The Lord says, “I look deep down inside human hearts. I see what is in people’s minds. I reward each person in keeping with their conduct. I bless them based on what they have done.”
Prayer: Thank you, Lord! I feel comforted that you know my heart. and mind even if I think unholy thoughts from time to time. You are my maker, you know me better than I know myself. I will keep in the word, keep praying and teaching the word to my kids so that my heart continues to evolve and become more and more like Christ’s with each passing day. I am thankful that you, even in our unholiness, can love us. That we are not despicable in your site, that you have patience with us and our growth toward you.
