Finally opened my blog site, and I’m noticing a poor pattern here.
Seriously, it’s just about everyday I think of something I need to blog about. What that means is, there’s something I want to either add to last weeks sermon, or some observation I just made, or I just witnessed a real-life answer to prayer and I want you to know it. There’s always something. I am a little intimidated to even think about making a list of such observations since I last wrote here. Yep, it’s that bad. (Maybe a few highlights will show up if I can in fact get on this horse and stay on it for a while.)
I’ve mentioned before that I like to read either a chapter from Proverbs each day or one of the Psalms. No matter what else I’m reading (currently the wild ride of King David), I like to keep the Proverbs open. As you probably already know, the 31 chapters in Proverbs makes it easy to stay in the game. You know life happens, you get busy, and you realize it’s been too long since you’ve had meaningful time in the Scriptures. With the Proverbs, you simply pick up reading on the corresponding day of the month. That’s not why I read it, but it’s probably what got me started and yes, it still helps.
Have you found yourself saying, “yep, it’s been awhile” since I …? It’s not too late. If it’s about taking care of your soul by reading, meditating, enjoying some good worship music, then do it. Now. Today. Open the Bible and read a paragraph and stop for 5 minutes and think on it. Has it been awhile since you’ve exercised, enjoyed your favorite meal, or written in your journal or spent time with someone near you? Just do it. Today. Even if it’s simple.
Kinda like today’s blog.
