"Let all that I am wait QUIETLY..." Wow, what a challenge. If you are like me, I tend to always be fiddling with stuff. Crackling - noisy stuff. Stuff that is full of complaint and self focused. Yes, I am noisy. May I lay it all down and come to God empty handed (best plan for a noise-less encounter). Quietly.

30 Second Bible Study: "Above all else guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." (Pro 4:23, NIV). Besides, paying close attention and learning good judgment and not losing sight of wisdom, (context of the Proverb) we are to guard, we are to protect our heart. Our heart (our inner man; our mind, will and emotions) is vulnerable. It HAS to be protected. Guarding is a God quality, "You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble..." (Ps 32:7a) And not to mention, (but I will, because I NEED it) “Set a guard, O LORD over my mouth, keep watch over the doors of my lips." (Ps 141:3). Guarding and protecting is a shared responsibility, God does His part and WE do ours. Guarding.

Esther 'sacrificed' - she went before the king to speak on behalf of her people without an invitation (punishable by death) she survived and the King granted her request. Ruth 'loved' her mom in law and followed her to a new country, people, God and found Boaz (King David's great-grandparents). Martha 'served' those who studied at Jesus' feet. Hannah 'prayed' for a child and believed God to provide (thus Samuel). Mary 'believed' the angel and summitted her will to being Jesus' mom. Miriam 'danced' and lead others in worship as they left Egypt and escaped the Egyptian army.
What will be YOUR listing...
