So, I've realized that my time with God recently has not been what it should be. My Bible reading is spotty at best, when I get around to it, and almost never do I take the time to think deeply about what I've read. Lyndon is nearly four months old; it's time to stop using the "new baby" excuse.
(As a disclaimer, I know that even a good thing like consistent, meaningful quiet times is not my hope of salvation. It will not get me into Heaven. Only Christ's sacrifice can do that. BUT I do want to spend consistent, meaningful time with my Savior, and sometimes we need a little nudge to do even the things we want to do.)
So, I'm starting a series here on the blog. Once a week, I pledge to write about my time in God's Word. I hope to expound on something I've read, which means I will actually have to think about it, which will be good for me. Writing is THE BEST way for me to organize my thoughts and discover new things. It's how I learn. I used to go through journal after journal, crafting responses to everything around me, but it's been a long time since I've done that, and this is the closest thing I have to a journal right now. Plus, it will keep me accountable. If I don't write something, you will know.
So, here we go. Look for my first post sometime this weekend (as this post is already long enough) and AT LEAST once a week after that. Help me get back where I want to be.
