But the Lord has been changing my heart. I didn't really notice it at first, but I am realizing that since I have been reading my bible daily, my tastes and interests are changing. I no longer feel drawn to the TV. And there are so many shows on TV that I previously found funny, but now I just don't want to put that in my head. (I'm not saying that watching TV is bad in itself. I still enjoy watching occasionally, just not all day every day)
I am also noticing an actual desire to be in the Word. I only used to read my bible occasionally, and only out of a sense of obligation. Now I look forward to it, and I feel drawn to read and understand what Gods Word says.
The only thing I can say about these changes is that it is all the Lord. I know for sure that this didn't come from me. I have no natural desires for what is right and good. The only reason for these changes is that the Lord chose to change my heart. And I am so thankful. While I have been writing, this verse came to mind:
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:8 esv
