Many years ago, when I was newly blogging and newly walking with the Lord, I read Lauren F. Winner’s book Girl Meets God.
I especially loved the chapter about belief, titled Credo. There’s a section of that chapter where Winner quotes a passage from Diana Eck’s Encountering God, explaining that the Latin credo literally means I give my heart.
I was so moved by the idea that belief is heart language.
All those years ago, I wrote these words about it: I love the idea that belief is heart language, that when you truly commit to a relationship with God, your faith is rooted in a love so strong that you give your heart to it.
Friends, as we begin this 31 day journey about big belief, let’s check our hearts. Let’s search them for areas of unbelief that we can uncover and surrender to Him, as we take this journey together.
Today, I’m going to spend time in my journal listing out the areas in my heart where I cling to lies and unbelief. I encourage you to do the same. With His guidance, we’ll tackle those unbeliefs together in the days ahead.
::For the month of October, I’m participating in The Nester’s #31Days blog writing challenge. My topic? Big BELIEF. For the next 31 days, I’ll be writing three main things: 1. BELIEVING in His good plan for my life, 2. BELIEVING in the dreams He’s placed on my heart, and 3. BELIEVING in who He is and what He promises. So, what do you say? Will you join me? Will you open your heart to Him and allow Him to grow your belief over these next 31 days? You can read all my #31Days posts, here.::
