There has been some confusion as to whee we were beginning.
Today we will be doing The Battle (pages 10-12)
The Word says that what's in the heart comes out of the heart eventually. Garbage in, garbage out. Brooke gives us a great illustration from a pastor friend of hers. He poured some water into a Styrofoam cup and then ran his hand into the cap so that the water splattered every where. He then asked this question: "Why did the water come out of the cup?" So what do you think? Did it come out because he rammed his hand up against it? Certainly a possible answer. But consider this: could it be that the water came out of the cup because there was water IN the cup? Thank about it...if the cup had been empty when he rammed it, nothing would have come out.
And so it is with our hearts. Life has a way of being that hand that rams up against us. "Life happens" If there is good stuff in our hearts instead of bad stuff then it is the good stuff that comes out.
Luke 6:45 - "The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks."
Commit today to praying the 10 prayers in the heart change chapter during the day (page 12)
I am praying for you all and asking God to give you the strength you will need to persevere in this challenge and for Him to move in the hearts of all of your sons. In Jesus Name!
And just remember that your son is watching you and what happens when life runs into you...what comes out of your heart?!
