Word Filled Wednesday

WFWlogo
James 1:22
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."

During this summer, bit by bit I have done some major organizing and decluttering in my home. I found out that I have a lot of stuff!  Stuff that can be useful and enhance my life…if it is being used.  There are tons of books, devotion material, education activities, healthy eating tips, home organization systems etc., that were piled up in closets and cubbies.  They don’t do any good sitting around, but now they are in an easy to find place and ready to be used. 

This reminded me of the encouragement of this verse in James.  We are not to only hear God’s Word, but to be doers of what it says.  God’s Word gives and equips us with wisdom, strength, hope, joy, peace and instruction. If we follow it, blessings will follow.  May we seek to not only be hearers, but doers!

    A quilters stash is not to be sniffed at.....add to that a librarian's collection, a musicians collection...and I could keep going....
