Let the words of Jesus cover your heart

The sermon this morning has stuck in my head. It was entitled “what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger” and was all about how God works for our good through all circumstances, how we can become stronger in Christ through difficult circumstances.

I was reminded of my own weaknesses. What others think of me has had such a powerful effect on me. I have learnt that it is only when the words of Jesus are louder in my heart than other peoples words… Will peace be mine.

So what is it that Jesus taught me through recent difficult times? That I need to make time for his words to be wrapped around my heart. There is no short cutting the reading and study of his word. There is no substitute for meeting with him in prayer.

With all the storm on Twitter, where people have used words as weapons against women, my prayer is that we all may have the words of Jesus covering our hearts.
