Tuesday's Treasure:God's Love Story to Me

I am sure by now it is evident the amount of daydreaming and praying that I do about being a woman after God's own heart. Call me "Mrs. Fix It", but I honestly wake up each day in anticipation of what I can learn today to be the wife, daughter, mother, friend that I seek.

Sometimes I am an overachiever and forget that great lives are made up of many "little" disciplines. One little discipline I have been trying to achieve is to study God's word. The treasures of God's word are fathomless (Romans 11:33) and His word helps flesh out the heart attitude that God calls us all to be.

The scripture that has been on my heart the past few weeks is Colossians 3:12-14. (For me, it makes studying and memorizing scriputre so much easier if I personalize it, that is why it might be a little different if you try to look it up word-for-word)

It says that since God chose me for this new life of love, I must clothe myself with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. I must make allowance for other’s faults. I must forgive anyone who offends me as I remember that the Lord forgave me-so I must forgive others. And regardless of what else I put on, I must clothe myself with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

I would love to hear what scripture reaches deepest in your heart...what is God speaking to you this week? What treasure have you found in His word...
