Tuck His Word in Your Heart Tuesdays

Evan is outside taking a quick break from schoolwork, and I felt the Lord place on my heart to write a really quick post on Tuesday to tuck His word in your heart.

As mothers, we are so very busy and often forget our First Love...Jesus!  And if you homeschool too like our family, well, you totally can forget to stop and tuck His word into your heart in the midst of days filled with chores, schoolwork, laundry, meals, emails, phone calls, extracurricular activities...you get the picture!

Today, I am tucking this into my heart:

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.  Proverbs 9:10

This is our memory verse this week for our My Father's World First Grade curriculum.

When we fear the Lord, we aren't to cower down in a corner and hide from Him.  No, what is meant, I think, is that we respect and want to honor Him.  When we honor Him, we are tucking His word into our heart.  And when we tuck His word into our heart, we become wiser.  And when we become wiser, we have more understanding of Him and how important He truly is in our lives.  And when we truly understand His word, we become less dependent on ourselves and learn to trust and obey and lean on Him.

Happy Tuesday...gotta run!
