GOD PAUSE: I fondly remember when I first gave my heart to the Lord as teenager. Right away, I just also fell in love with the Bible. I saw it as God speaking right to me personally. And I simply wanted to live it out in my everyday world. Then I kind of went off track, thinking the Bible was given for me to either straighten others out or to prove I was right in what I believed. God, bring me to the reality of what you said to the children of Israel in Deuteronomy 6:6 --- “Make the things I'm commanding you today part of who you are.” Dear Papa, this is the bottom line for me --- to let Your words become who I am. With You helping us, I and my friend will be your written words on display. Amen and amen.
