“but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”
I Peter 3:4 (ESV)
My previous post brought to mind how during this season everything is growing so green and lush and wonderfully. But what about me ~ am I growing and allowing the Lord to change me day by day?
My outward person is pretty much quiet and reserved ~ but what about the “hidden person of the heart”? Do I have the “gentle and quiet spirit” that the Lord is looking for? This is an area where I have much more growing to do! The Lord brought this scripture to my remembrance today. Sometimes it is so easy to just float along and think I am doing quite fine ~ but the Lord sees a much bigger picture of things than I do…
“for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
I Samuel 16:7 (KJV)
I am so thankful that the Lord is patient and kind and that every day His mercy is new!! Today is a new day ~ a day to allow Him to do the work He needs to do in me to grow me into who He wants me to be!
May your day be filled with His grace and goodness! ♥
