Another Treasure from my Bible

Dear Child,

Before you open my Word this morning, stop and consider what you are holding in your hands. It is more then paper and ink, more then words and sentences. You are holding in your hands the very essence of who I AM! My Word is my nature, my wisdom, my guidance, my love distilled into letter form. You are holding health and life, truth and healing. Keep my Word before your eyes. Give it permission to roam the rooms of your heart - cleaning, straightening, rearranging; closing doors on some things and opening windows on others. My word can be for your heart a companion, a hearth, and a housekeeper; a gardener to weed your thoughts and a guard against intruders. And so, as you open my Word this day, read with your eyes, but listen with your life.

I want to speak to you,

God

I've never seen this one before. It's a good one! I'm thinking I need to look through all the papers in my Bible too!
