"A Woman After God's Own Heart" is divided up into 3 Parts. Some of the chapters are lengthly and divided into subparts so may take more than one day for me to write down my "review" for each chapter. Please bear with me and I hope you will be blessed as you read this as I have been blessed (again) from reading this book (again).
Chapter 1: A Heart Devoted to God
"But one thing is needful:
and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her."
A. A Change of Heart
In I Cor. 5:7 it says "For we walk by faith not by sight"
How much easier is it to trust what we see instead of what we don't see; it IS much harder to trust what we don't see. That's why we need to adjust our perspective to match God's view of life; which includes the past, present and future. We need to keep in mind that God knows all things and have the faith to trust that he wants what is best for us.
We should live every day to count now and for eternity; choose to live every day for God; our sole desire.
- Love Him
- Worship Him
- Walk with Him
- Serve Him
- Look forward to being with Him in eternity
If our perspective matches God's view of life than our desires will be what God would have us to desire.
- What am I doing to become a woman He wants me to be
- Give God ALL of my heart and devotion
- Make Him #1 in all things--the highest priority
I've learned that it's a choice whether I do so or not. It's a choice NOT to make my choices by what has happened or is happening in my life but by what God wants in my life.
It's MY choice whether or not I'm going to see things from God's perspective and have the faith that he knows what is best for me--no matter what it is.
