“Do not merely write about the word and so deceive* yourself, Gail. Do what it says.” James 1:22, my paraphrase
Most of what I write for Bible Love Notes comes from my own joys, victories, needs, brokenness, sins and sorrows.
Recently, I’ve been stressed with worry and discouragement, and high levels of stress do strange things to me—my hair falls out, for one thing. And watching my hair fall out creates more stress!
So I study and write about God’s answers for worry and discouragement because His answers are the only ones that matter...the only ones that help long term.
But that doesn’t mean I apply what I write. And when I fail to apply it I become deceived.*
Will you pray for me as I commit to apply God’s Word more fully to my life? And if you're struggling to apply God’s principles to your life, let me know and I’ll pray for you too.
