Yesterday in church our pastor said something that really hit my heart and I wanted to share it today. He said, "The Bible isn't meant to be like a great historic novel that we read once and put down...and then pick up a few years later to reread. It is God's word, our lifeline, our sustenance. It's meant to be read and reread over and over again, daily, constantly. It has to be a part of our life every single day if we expect to grow spiritually."
I'm so guilty of not reading the Bible like I should.
To quench our thirst, we drink. To satisfy our hunger, we eat. In that same way, we need to fulfill our spiritual thirst/hunger with the word of God.
I want to start being more intentional about reading God's word. I can make all the excuses I want...I'm too tired, too busy, etc. But I make time to blog and watch tv. How much more important is my spiritual life than those things?
I've never been good at morning Bible quiet times. I'm just not a morning person. Period. So I'm going to start having evening quiet times. I'm praying that God does big things in my heart/life!
