08/31/10 - Random Thoughts

Here's some of my random thoughts lately:

* If you speak the truth, in love, you'll either be loved or hated.

* We can become so blinded by our own lies that it's near impossible to see the truth.

* We need to look at our sin through the back drop of who God is and His word.

08/23/10 - Fallow Ground

I'm going through a bible study: Seeking Him with a three other gals. Last time I went through this study, I did it alone, so I am looking forward to going through it with other people. It's always neat to hear what someone else took from each lesson.

The first week's memory verse is: Break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12

Fallow ground is ground that has once been plowed, but not laying waste. The idea that our hearts were once passionate for God, but have since become a waste land.

If you read the next verse: "You have plowed iniquity, you have reaped injustice; you have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you have trusted in your own way and in the multitude of your warriors." Hosea 10:13

The section that jumped out at me was: you have eaten the fruit of lies.

Eaten...we've taken it in, digested lies, and they sustain us. How often do we believe a lie without really seeking the truth? How often do we even have a hard time telling the difference between the truth and a lie. Is it because we've "eaten" the lies?

May we be people who earnestly seek truth!

08/17/10 - Cutting Corners

In life it may be tempting to cut corners or try to do the littlest, easiest amount to get the results you want. But what I've come to realize if you try to cut one corner, another one will poke you back. It just doesn't work.

Life is full of "doing hard things" (love that book by the Harris twins). Life is not easy. We're called to take the high ride, walk in integrity, and not cut corners.

The earlier we learn this lesson, the better off we'll be!
