How Often Do You Talk About the Lord?

One day I paused on the patio at my church to chat with a woman I hadn’t visited with for a while. In seconds I recognized that I was in the presence of a woman whose words left me truly energized spiritually and inspired me to want to rush home, curl up with my Bible for the afternoon, and spend lots of time with the Lord.

What happened, I wondered when I walked away. As I reviewed our time together, I soon realized that this woman spoke of the Lord. Of course she spoke of other things, too—practical things. After all, it was a conversation! But somehow she blessed God with her every breath. She exalted Him and brought Him to the forefront of our discussion. It was as if He was right there with us (as indeed He was and always is)—the center of our talk—at least from her side of our discussion. Yes, she spoke out of a full heart, a heart full of Him!

And so this humbled woman (me) went home, curled up with my Bible, spent time with my Lord … and made a decision—to speak of the Lord, to begin as many sentences as possible with the words “the Lord…” or “God…” In essence, I was making a decision to put Him first. Oh, He’s first in my heart, but I want Him to be first in my talk, too!

“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works” (Psalm 9:1). Help me share Your goodness with those I talk to, to speak of You from a heart that is full of You. Amen.

Enjoy a treasure trove of truths and applications that enable you to follow in the footsteps of Jesus with Elizabeth George’s book, A Woman Who Reflects the Heart of Jesus.

Several years ago, while teaching a series entitled “The Wise Homemaker,” I asked a hundred women, “What keeps you from getting your housework done?” There were four main answers: poor use of time, lack of motivation, failure to plan, and procrastination. These reasons make perfect sense to me, and I can certainly relate to all four of these answers.

Meek to Mighty

“I used to be so confident. But now I feel like such a loser.” Do you feel this way? My God never asks for us to have confidence in ourselves. He only asks that we have confidence in Him! And when God commands, He also supplies. This is true for every area of your Christian life. You can get up every day, go to your closet, and select the spiritual clothes you’ll wear for the day. Here’s a partial description of God’s approved wardrobe.
