Several weeks ago our Pastor was ending his sermon and challenged us, anyone who wanted a challenge. I sat motionless not knowing what to expect.
He said "read a book in the Bible" (I immediately thought JOHN), "and read it 50 times, don't think you must read it in record time, read it and see where it takes you."
Well, I am on a wonderful journey, I am now into my 8th reading, and my relationship with God is growing stronger with each reading. I am not rushing but I am seeing that I want to read more quickly, moving on to the next chapter. I am remembering passages, I am getting to know John on a personal level, and I am loving every minute of it.
I find that instead of spending a few moments online, or doing something that interests me, I FIRST want to get some reading done. It's taking me to my Bible on a very regular basis and I feel wonderful.
Blessings, have a wonderful weekend.
