Watching the colors of purple and pink on the trees as I pass by them and how beautiful they are; just watching the changing seasons I remember as a child I was told to hide God's word in my heart. By hiding His Word in my heart and knowing His word it would bring me closer to God and it would help me get through this life. It would help me finish well.

I studied and memorized God's word when I was young. Remembering some as I got older. I made many wrong choices along the way but I always came back to God. Just as we put the breastplate of righteousness over our hearts we protect, gusrd our heart from evil.

God's word puts a wall of protection around our hearts so the evil of this world cannot get in. There are many times that wrong doctrine or the world influence might have entered my heart if it wasn't guarded. Guarded by God's protective hand.

I believe we are put here to fulfill a call a destiny God has for us on this earth. Only by knowing God and His Word can we fulfill our destiny.

Know that I am old I remember the child learning God's word. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity and guidance to learn it. We will always study and learn more of God until we fulfill our call. We will never learn it all. I am so thankful God sent His Word to guard my heart for Him.

This is really lovely. At first when you mentioned hide God's word in my heart, I thought that can't be right! As I read on I realized you didn't mean keep God's word a secret but to use it to protect my heart.

You have a few tiny typos that a good proofreader would be able to help you with. Feel free to check the message boards or ask someone you trust to proof your story before you submit it.

You did a nice job of writing on topic and getting right to the heart of the matter. :)
