“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.”
~Luke 2:19

I often think about the phrase, Mary “pondered them in her heart.” Sometimes I see what appears to be the Lord working and I ponder on what He may be doing. I have a sheet in my prayer notebook that I have titled “Ponderings.”  On this page I list things that I want to pray about, but don’t really know what to pray.  Those things are between me and the Lord.  I sit back and see what He will do and thank Him that He has everything under control.  As I sit here and type this out, I realize that is how I should be thinking about every area of life.  Not just the things that I don’t really know how to pray about.

Another pondering today has been about my walk with the Lord.  I was listening to a podcast on my morning walk and one of the speakers was introduced as a woman full of theology.  Then the one introducing her said “I want to be like her when I grow up.”  I want to be a woman full of theology that affects every area of my life.  I am far from perfect.  I sin.  But as I age and grow closer to my God, I pray that I will sin less and less.  The other question I ask myself is “What am I doing to become a woman full of theology?”  I have some spiritual goals and these are all good.  I need to be in the Word and I need to be in it more.  That means I will have to make some serious choices about how I spend my time.

And last on the pondering list today is this blog.  I do not plan to quit.  I am amazed that I still have an audience when I have been so sporadic with posting.  I’m glad that others can read past writings and benefit from them.  My problem is that I am completely out of inspiration.  So I am praying about what direction the Lord will take me here.  You can help!!  Is there anything you would like to hear? What are some of your favorite posts?  How can I be a blessing to you, dear reader?

until the next time…
