Wednesday Wanderings

or maybe I should say wonderings … or maybe it’s just both.

Some of the places I’ve wandered these past few days include:

Michael Hyatt’s blog: I loved his post on Monday, Three Reasons Why You Must Guard Your Heart.  This especially resonated within my spirit.

Because your heart is under constant attack. When Solomon says to guard your heart, he implies that you are living in a combat zone—one in which there are casualties.

Cravings: Carey has become one of my favorite bloggers lately (in fact, she’s invited me to share some thoughts on gentleness with her readers next week.  squee!).   On Mondays, she challenges her readers to put into practice what they learned on Sunday.  This week, she shared from Ephesians 3:20 – 21.   Good stuff!

If so, do you believe God can do anything?

“He does it not by pushing us around”

God does not shove you. He does not force you. He does not ram you.

“but by working within us,“

 

The Modern Mrs. Darcy: While I am not a big Jane Austen fan {gasp!}, I do love this blog filled with wit and wisdom.  In How to Encourage the Man in Your Life:  Don’t Shoot His Ideas Down, Anne gives sound counsel about being an encourager to our husbands.  {And I’m excited that this is going to be a new series on her blog!} Her first two suggestions are definitely a great reminder – I especially love #2!

  1. He wants you to be a listening ear–and not a critical one.
  2. He wants you to believe in him. Here’s where it gets tricky–he wants you to believe in him–not necessarily in his every idea.

And I’ve wondered about a few things this week as well …

  • What am I hungering for? Am I hungry for the things that satisfy me or the things that satisfy God?
  • Is learning to s.l.o.w. a lifelong lesson?  {I hope so! Because I’m not making fast progress.}
  • How do I train my heart to hear God’s voice the first time?
  • Where does controlling the tongue begin?  How do we keep that One Small Spark from turning into an overwhelming fire of hurt and devastation?

Where are wandering?  What are you wondering?

  1. I am just beginning to wander for the week. I had become a blogging addict, spending hours working on my blog and reading other blogs every day and my life was taking a toll for it. Today, I’m setting a timer and allowing myself to ease into wandering. I will have to check out the links you shared! Thanks!!

      No, sweet Cindy, I will not be at She Speaks this year. Maybe in 2012.

  4. I’m honored, thanks so much!

    These are wonderful resources that were unfamiliar to me. Kristi’s is my favorite–although anything about the tongue can make me squirm a little while I’m reading!
