Michel: Writing not on my walls but in my heart

Published 12:01 am Saturday, July 29, 2017

You would think that whenever I have a list of things to do and deadlines to make, I’d jump in and tackle my list.

Unfortunately for me, that’s not how I operate. I procrastinate. Rather than finish projects underway, I think of more things to do.

That’s why, instead of cleaning the garage, I’m about to make a T-shirt quilt, and before I clear my walls of old prints, I want to try my hand at scripting on canvas.

I haven’t bought the supplies yet, but I do have a list of possible quotes.

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

“Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.” Elisabeth Elliot

“If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” Augustine

“Stress Key: Ignore more than you ingest!” Michael Green

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12

“God doesn’t love me because I’m good, He loves me because He’s good.”

“The truth is like a lion. Release it and it will defend itself.” C. S. Lewis

I’m not sure if any of those will become the writing on my walls; however, I’m trying to be sure they are engraved on my heart.
