There are days when I struggle just to get lunch on the table. In those moments when I am wiping up another spilled cup of water I turn the music up. The words help lift me up and things seem clearer. I love having music playing throughout our home.
I also have a yearning deep inside of my soul to know the word of God. Without God's word I am lost and hopeless, but with it I have life & unspeakable joy. I can't shake this deep desire in me to learn the word of God more. To dwell on the words that it gives and read the stories of days of old. Most of the time I don't fully understand every verse but this heart of mine can still grasp words that bring hope.
I recently heard a wonderful lady, Kelly Hegi talk about how she writes down the word. She started in the book of John and it took her 9 months to finish that book. Most days she only had 5 or 10 minutes in between life as a mom but she did it little by little and it was LIFE!
I generally have a hard time reading and retaining things but when I write things down it is different.
I've been writing verses that pop out to me when I read a daily Bible reading plan that I've been using but the idea of writing down a whole book consecutively has my heart screaming: YES!
Whether I get one sentence written a day or a whole page...it is LIFE.
I agree that John is a great place to start. :-)
