Yesterday, I shared that the only way that we have any hope that our children will not look to people or things of this world to fill their hearts is if we fill it with Truth – Jesus’ truth!
When I go and speak at conferences, for teens or moms, I give out what we should be putting into our hearts and minds – God’s Word.
Below please find some of my very favorite parts of His love notes. When I was younger, I used to write these verses about on index cards. I would put them in my locker and swap them with an old friend (you might enjoy knowing who she was…Brenda Warner :). Known as the “Jesus Freaks” of our school, we encouraged each other every day to stand up for Him. Leaving high school, I still took my verses. I would read them on the way to class. As I grew up, my methods didn’t really change; only the place where I would stash my verses did. I distincly remember one day at my job, grabbing my verses out of my desk drawer and walking up and down the street in Greenville, South Carolina filling my heart with truth because I was so broken hearted. For me, it was something I had to have; I was desperate for Him.
I will type out the verses here, but if you would like, I would be happy to send the verses to you in the form I give to the girls. They are business card size with borders around them. Event planners will print them on bookmarkers or card stock and put them on a ring (think key chain). This way the girls can keep them handy and hopefully get them in their heart. If you would like to have those sent to you via email, just leave a comment on my blog at www.lynncowell.com with your email address and I will get them sent to you. (I’ll be sure to do it next week just as soon as Madi and I get back from our conference this weekend!)
God’s greatest to you!
