Today’s Bible Reading: 2 Timothy 4:19-22; Hebrews 1:1-4:13
I prefer to start my day in God’s Word. I realize we are all in different seasons of our lives. I have sometimes used that as an excuse, but at this time in my life most of the distractions are gone. Mind you, raising a family is an excellent “distraction” but can be really exhausting. I remember well the mornings when I just wanted to close my eyes a little longer rather than get up ahead of my boys. I confess to you that there were too many mornings when I gave in to that desire and I would find myself humbled by one of my dear sons who would pipe up, “Mom, did you spend time with God this morning?” This was not a question they ever asked on those days when I had indeed spent time in God’s word as I greeted the day. They are the ones who lived with the me who chose sleep over God and witnessed the impact that had on how I lived out that day. Reading God’s Word is not something to check of my to-do list, it is vital to my daily life. It has been my routine now for over 20 years…I no longer question how important it is to my walk with God. I have lived it out for far too long to ever doubt.
