Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. My hope is to see others comment and share a scripture that they have read.
Here's the scripture that stuck this week:
Isaiah 40:8 ESV
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever."
Last night, as I pulled into my driveway, I looked at my yard. It doesn't look bad, but there's a lot of weeds in the midst of all the grass. My first impulse, was, "I've got to take care of those weeds". I don't think there's anything wrong with taking care of what you've got, but you've got to remember that all the stuff we have is very temporary. In that brief moment, I was a little concerned with the state of my yard, but I quickly remembered that it's not a huge priority in my life, nor should it be. The state of my heart has got to be on my mind. The Word of God should be on my mind. No matter how much weed and feed I put on my grass, it will wither away one day. If the Word of God is not on my mind, then that is where weeds can pop up even more, and that's got to be a huge concern for me.
What's your Word?
