Overflow

"The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks." Luke 6:45

What kind of story do you have?

Do you struggle to find the words?

I do.

Maybe I'm trying too hard. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places to discover it. Too often I consider the audience when I think of sharing my story. I think about what it is that they need to hear, rather than simply saying what I need to say.

"For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks."

If I don't know what to say, maybe I haven't stored up enough in my heart. Maybe I'm too worried that the truth will come out - that there isn't much to tell.

Lord, I feel so caught up in the circumstance of my life. I seem to be bouncing about - tossed by the waves, rather than steering a course You have plotted. Help me to store good things in my heart. Let my life story overflow from Your goodness. Be my constant Guide in the storms.
