to soak or become absorbed," "to become impressively known or felt," and "to cause (something) to penetrate."
Homeschooling is so fun because I get to witness my kids experience the "sinking in" thing all the time! I love how Aimee will work really hard on learning how to sound out one of her letters and then a little light bulb turns on and her eyes shine and BOOM! She knows the answer! Consider it SUNK!
But how much more beautiful to experience a gem from God's Word sinking into the hearts of my children or into my own heart. That point of understanding is so much more important than learning any of the ABC's. But sometimes it can be so very basic and necessary to our walk with God.
Lord ~ If there is anything that needs to sink in for me today, please lead me and guide my heart and make it tender to your lessons and leading. Help me to be sensitive to those times when God may be using me to help something sink into my children's hearts. Thank you for never failing me and continually teaching me day by day. Amen.
