I have come to the conclusion that a jump-start is needed every morning to get myself back into the Word of God. I need to read the Bible everyday so I try to get synchronized with God, if that's really possible. I do want to be in tune to what God wants for me. I think everyone wants that.
So beginning on this date, I've started reading a daily devotional and the Bible. The devotional I have chosen to read everyday is "Rise and Shine" by Liz Curtis Higgs.
Reading today: "Rise and Shine, Sister Mine!" (Thanks Liz -- those words hit me hard)
"Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool." (Proverbs 19:1)
Father, thank you for your gentle hand in guiding me back to the Bible. Offering Your guidance and direction in a most subtle way. You are the One I will turn to and not a counterfeit or substitute of the world will ever be sufficient. Thank you for never giving up on me! In Your precious Son's name, Amen.
