Time spent in God's Word is so precious. These past couple of days I have been yearning to read my Bible and spend that time with God. I haven't made that time lately and I really need to. At the moment I'm learning how to balance my online classes and other aspects of my life. As I'm writing right now I realize that maybe reading His Word is the missing link to the balance I am so desperately craving. I am learning that God's Word definitely deserves and needs to be my foremost priority. Not being in the Word makes me realize how much more I need it because it refreshes my soul. I mean, I get bits and pieces of His Word from my theology class, but I need that personal time set aside to breathe it all in. I'm so grateful that I have matured in my relationship with God to know what a blessing Scripture is in my life. As I step back in thought and realize the impact God's Word has in my life I'm amazed. I'm amazed because I notice the difference and what a powerful difference it has in my life. God's Word brings instruction, peace, and wisdom; all of which I treasure. I endure each day by God's grace and I am empowered through the truth of Scripture. Scripture makes a difference in my life and it is such an amazing gift from God. In the beginning of the year I had made my goal or resolution for the year to crave God more than I ever have before. This yearning within me for His Word is the encouragement I need to pursue God even more. The Holy Spirit's prompting is such a blessing as well! Okay, enough about talking about reading God's Word, I'm going to actually spend time in it now. Blessings!
