Last summer I started a little Bible Study called Idols of the Heart. Like sometime in June.
I decided yesterday, ( because I think I had forgotten how guilty I felt last time). I got it down off the shelf, and started reading. As she explained Idolatry, one of the exercises she asked for was what were my idols. Just off the top of my head, my list was this:
2. Entertainment ( books, movies, sewing...)
3.My husband, my kids, and my grandkids
Then if I lied to myself pretty good I could put God here.
I remembered how I had worked on them in the spring, how no weed was there and it was all pretty and flowers blooming everywhere.
Now, if there are flowers, they are pretty much covered up by the weeds. I can't even tell myself that the Johnson grass growing there is really pretty. I need to do something about it. My life is just like that flowerbed. I get myself all in shape, (God wise not physical shape) My devotional life will be in a good place and I feel like I can take a bit of time to do other things than start my day off with my Bible and notebook and prayer. Small weeds start growing but I am so busy looking at the flowers I don't even notice a stray weed or two,
Thank you for stopping by to read my ramblings. I should change the name of my blog on these days to " Ramblings from the Funny Farm."
Have a lovely Thursday,
