X is for X-Ray - Blog Hop Friday

A to Z blog hop at Patterings.
We are down to the final three weeks of Blog Hop Friday. This week is X for x-ray, but not in the traditional use of the word. Psalm 26:2 says:

Test me, Lord, and try me;
examine my heart and mind.


When was the last time you allowed God to examine your heart? When have you x-rayed your days and life to evaluate how you spend your time? The beginning of the New Year is a great opportunity to make necessary changes so our hearts and minds are in accord with Christ and what He wants us to be doing.

Is it time you had an x-ray?

Ha! I need a God x-ray at least 10 times a day. :)

I think we each do, Diana. :)

Patty Wysong said...

Great tie in, Jodie. Such a good and needed reminder!

Like Diana said, Patty - I think we need to do this multiple times a day. I know I sure do.

Definitely time for a closer look at the things only God can see. Thanks for the practial application this week. God Bless.

I totally need those X-rays. Almost constantly. Great reminder!

Barbara Lynn Culler said...

Good point and great analogy!

Linda said...

My whole blog is an X-Ray of what God has done with me in the last three years - He certainly has turned me inside out multiple times! Lol! Great post and happy new year!

Karla Akins said...

What a clever use of the word and letter!

Thanks for stopping by, Nancy. I'm glad that even though God can see where we fail, He also provides second (and third, and fourth....) chances to start again.

I know what you mean, Joanne. I need those x-rays too.

Happy New Year to you too, Linda. What a great way of being transparent... through a blog. :)
