Tablet of your Heart

Hi there friends!

I decided to give you a little “re-introduction” to my blog, since many of you have come in recently, or may be confused as I changed the name of the blog and the Facebook page.

If you don’t know me, here’s a short synopsis.  I have been a “wanna-be” writer for most of my life.  I mean, I wrote the love poems for mom in second grade, and the occasional short story, and journaling.  Dreamed of writing since my late teens.  I knew there were reasons for all my childhood pain, but didn’t know what they were.

Life got busier and busier, and I was on to so many things throughout my life and writing was almost always put on the back burner.  I continued to keep that dream tucked away.

Went to college, got married, had two sons, taught elementary school for 27 years.  All that mom stuff- running to preschool to volunteer, grade school class trips, college visits, and then that continuous never ending pile of wash–and schoolwork!!  Soccer games, volunteering- you get the routine.

A never ending flurry of activity that kept me on a merry-go-round which never seemed to stop.

Until one day…God had other plans for me.  I didn’t know what they were then.  But one day, He started to make it clear that I was going to move on to something else.  I just wasn’t sure what it was for a long time.   Lots of change and heartache, followed by tons of prayer and soul searching.  Lately, He’s been rubbing the fog off from the steamy window.

Now He’s given me the gift of time.

“Tablet of your Heart”, has been changing and evolving and it is really the story of a little child.  A child of God.  I decided to give it this name, because the verses in the Bible with these words touch me.  A couple of my favorite places are in 2 Cor. 3:3, where the Apostle Paul is speaking to the Corinthian church and says, “You yourselves are a letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody.  You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.  The other, is in Prov. 3:3, where it says about the Word of God, “bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart”.

We’ll see what God has in store.  It’s an exciting journey!  I am looking to Him.  He is the author and perfecter of my faith.

Follow along and see what God does!  If you have a similar story, I’d love to hear what the Holy Spirit has been doing in your life!

    Nice! That verse in Cor. never popped out at me before. So dynamic how scripture arouses the heart using different verses for different people.

      That’s so true Bev! God uses different verses and passages at various stages in our lives. Sometimes I can read a verse and think, “Wow, I never thought about that before!” His Word never returns void!
