Sock Monster!

The sock monster had hidden almost all the socks of one of my children. This child has like 30 to 40 socks already, but they have all disappeared. I have no idea where they are, so I figured the sock monster hid them. In desperation I bought him a new pack of socks. Of course, this means the sock monster will show us his stash, right? 

So where are they hid? My child admits the socks could be under the bed. Hmm. Maybe my child has turned into a sock hoarding monster. I have yet to check under the bed.  

I wonder if I need to be more like the sock monster? I don’t want to hide socks under my bed, but instead hide God’s word in my heart as David did. Psalm 119:11 says “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

I’m going to hide God’s word in my heart by collecting special verses in a notebook this year to read again and again.  

I eventually found socks stashed all over said child’s room. I was just thankful they hadn’t mutated into random Tupperware pieces!  

Which verses are special to you? Have you stashed them away in your heart?  

Suggestions to get you started:


Ephesians 3:20-21; Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen


Proverbs 3:5-6; Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 4:4-5; For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

2 Timothy 1:7;  For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.
