This year my husband said that he wanted our family verse to be Romans 1:21-22 Because that, when they knew God they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
When I first read this verse it didn't move me like it did my husband. I have had time to read it many times now and pray about it and it is exciting and awesome to me. I don't ever want to get to the point where I am not glorifying God in everything I do. I want to always have a thankful heart. And I think the hardest part of this verse for me to live by is my imagination. I want to have a healthy imagination, one that does bring thoughts of negativity, despair, turmoil, etc.. I want to always have an imagination of love, hope, peace, patience, kindness, etc.
I think if we can glorify God and have a thankful heart the imaginations of God will all fall into place. Now every time my husband and I pray we always glorify Him and thank Him and I find myself walking around during the day with a more thankful heart. To me it is so amazing to see how the Word of God truly is alive. And when we live it day to day it becomes alive in us.
Last but not least I pray to always remain humble and never become so vain that I become foolish.
