The Joyful Stepmom
Hide God's Word Week 1
Posted on September 11th, 2018

Last week, we began our Fall Study: Hide God's Word in My Heart. We are focusing on Bible Memory. ‚ÄčThere have been several times in my stepmom journey that I have been so grateful I memorized verses as a child. School events, pick up or sitting in the court room, I run through the verses in my head.

We need this practice of exercising our spiritual muscle. Each week, we will have a memory verse.

We began our study with 1 John 3: 1
I love this verse. It is a wonderful reminder that we are called His children. And that we are different from the world. So often as stepmoms, the world expects us to act a certain way. Do you feel that? We are to act with jealousy, bitterness, and from a defensive position.

But we are not of this world. 

This verse should remind us to act differently. What does the Lord call us towards? Peace. Love. Grace. The world should call us crazy when it looks at our actions! They will say- How can we offer forgiveness and peace? Isn't that woman our enemy? That child isn't your responsibility!

Let our response speak volumes to the love of the Father and to whom we belong.
