I’m a slow learner. Probably because I’m stubborn and hardheaded.
Sometimes it takes quite a few iterations of whatever God is trying to embed into my life: “Remember, Judy, when we went over this before?”
So to help me remember what God has so graciously tried to teach me, I have devised short sayings as reminders of truths about God and His desires for my life. Maybe some of these will resonate with you. There’s one for every day of the month.
1. The greener grass was spray painted by the evil one.
2. God is more committed to my character than my comfort. But He comforts me while he works on my character.

4. Never settle for less than God’s best.
5. Tell God the truth about how you feel. He can handle it.

27. When we offer the little we are and have, He takes it and multiplies it into His amazingly more than enough.
28. He became like us that we might become like Him.
29. God requires an open hand—so He can remove the wrong stuff and put His perfect stuff in.
