PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Luke 2:15-20
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” (Luke 2:19)
I am a pondering person, I am often thinking about God, Jesus, faith, etc.
For me these things are too profound to simply pass over or accept.
I’m not so much questioning them, as I am mulling over their meaning.
And like Mary, I am treasuring them, finding delight in them.
If God is in control, what does this mean for me?
If Satan is beaten, and I am free in Christ, what does this mean for me?
If God’s Spirit lives in me, how am I experiencing this reality?
If nothing can separate me from God’s love, how is this shaping my life?
So many thoughts, so many things to ponder and treasure.
This is what I am doing as I journal, pondering and treasuring.
I don’t always find something profound, but over time my faith grows deeper.
We will never plumb the depths of the ocean of treasures we find in Jesus.
But don’t let that stop you from jumping in and letting them surround you.
Ponder and treasure the things you believe, and you will only grow richer!
Lord, in you are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3), may I continue to find new treasures as I ponder who you are!
