I was in search of a pen that wouldn’t run dry after the first letter. Hmm. I have drawers full of pens, pencils, and crayons even. Yet, that writing instrument that would help me complete one sentence was nowhere to be found. Out of desperation I grabbed one of Bryan’s “good” pens.
For me, to get to something to penetrate, and go deep in my heart, I have to write it down.
It’s not enough to glance at the words.
The beginning of Ephesians is one of those passages for me. To take it to heart and be transformed, I must mull it over, whisper it under my breath, and know it like my own house address. That’s where transformation starts. So with a good quality pen and my journal, I begin.
Praise God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm because we are united with Christ…
Then I write it again, and with each time it’s illuminated in my thoughts more, and I begin to be amazed.
Wonder. Awe. Like a child.
God’s Word is intended to bring wonder and awe. But a glance will never give it what its due in our lives. It takes a purposeful look.
Take God’s Word to heart. Whatever you need to do to get it deep within you, start there. Grab a pen, say it out loud you have it written on your heart.
