Summer time, summer time, sum sum summer time!
I love summer! I love the lack of set schedules and the less busy days. But sometimes, when life doesn’t have as much order, neither does my “filling up” time with Jesus!
While quiet moments can be harder to find with the kids home, as moms and women who invest in others, our need to have hearts full so we can pour out doesn’t change.
Here are some of the verses I’m keeping close by this summer, to refill my ever leaky heart:
“My beloved is mine and I am his; he browses among the lilies.” Song of Solomon 2:16 (NIV)
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalm 32:7 (NIV)
“The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Exodus 15:2 (NIV)
“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)
“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” Song of Solomon 4:7 (NIV) (Particularly helpful as I head out to the pool!)
