Colossians 3:15-17 "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."I've never had a "life verse" before, but have felt this week like this might be a new "life verse" for me. I know God is at work in bringing more peace and more thankfulness into my life. I long to have His words dwelling in me richly and it is my dream to teach others more about God's truth. I also love writing music and leading worship and want to honor God in whatever I do. I also have felt like in this last week - at the Celebration event and after I came home - God has confirmed that He wants me to be doing those things. God really rekindled my passion for His Word. I believe He called me again to TEACH. I love, love, love talking to women and blogging for women (and the few men that love me enough to read what I write!) but right now the main "students" I have to teach are teenagers! Young-ish ones at that... I love the youth group we have but it's definitely a much bigger challenge to teach them than it is to talk to adults. I'm grateful that they listen as much as they do and that it gives me the opportunity to learn to teach. I'm praying God will teach me how to be a better teacher as I keep practicing and learning. And I also need to be more thankful. And more peaceful. : ) (And to go to bed!) : ), Melissa PS... If you're memorizing something, tell me in the comments what it is! Don't give up!!! : )
