Happy Monday!! I love Mondays, and mornings, and new years…basically anything that signals a fresh start! 🙂 Been that way as long as I can remember…but that’s a story for another day.
For now I have a very important questions for you…Are you drinking a milkshake while doing sit ups? Crazy, I know. But if you are trying to squeeze in your time with God while picking out your
clothes, making lunches, scheduling the next play date, throwing in a load of laundry, settling sibling disputes and feeding the dog, well….it’s pretty much like running through the drive thru on the way home from the gym! Now, don’t get me wrong…on occasion I’ve been known to enjoy a quarter pounder just as much as the next gal. But if I have a goal to improve my physical health then I create an environment that will help me stick to it. The same should be true if you plan to grow in your walk with the Lord.
When it comes to reading the Bible, you have to set yourself up for success! Limit your distractions and all the other noise so you can hear that still small voice as it works power into your every day life.
Take 5 minutes and watch this short video I did this morning. In it I do a reading of one of my favorite passages, Psalm 91. I encourage you to get yourself in an environment where you can just be with God. Open your Bible (not the app but the book…you know…with real pages) and read Psalm 91 out loud. Read it with emphasis and let the power and promise of this text wash over you and restore your soul. God’s Word is power and He has so many amazing things for you. Get alone with Him and let Him tell you about them!
