from the Lent 2020: His Love Endures reading plan


Jeremiah 15:16

BY She Reads Truth

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week we will memorize Jeremiah 15:16, Jeremiah’s meditation on God’s words during his prayer for vengeance.

Your words became a delight to me
and the joy of my heart,
for I bear your name,
LORD God of Armies.
—Jeremiah 15:16b

Save the image below as a lock screen for your phone so you can read these words throughout the day.

    Hebrews 8:10
    “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:”

    Yesterday I was to the little girl I take of at work, I’m a nurse and I do private duty with a four-year-old with multiple medical problems, the book My Heart by Corinna Luyken. It’s a very simple book: “My heart is a window, my heart is a slide. My heart can be closed or opened up wide. Some days it’s a puddle. Some days it’s a stain. Some days it is cloudy and heavy with rain. Some days it is tiny, but tiny can grow… and grow… and grow. There are days it’s a fence between me and the world, days it’s a wisper that can barely be heard. There are days it is broken, but broken can mend, and a heart that is closed can still open again. My heart is a shadow, a light and a guide. Closed or open… I get to decide.” After reading it I thought of how it reminds me of my relationship with God and Christ. How I make it cloudy and tiny. How I make open or closed. How when it is broken it can be mended. But especially, how it is for me to decide.
    Father God help to continue to decide to trust and follow You, even in the cloudy and rainy times. Help to allow You to by my Light and Guide. Open my heart to You, Christ and all those around who need my help. Amen.
