10 Ways to Fall in Love with your Bible by Shanna Noel
I've been anxiously awaiting Shanna's new book and excited to say it's as fabulous as I knew it would be. I don't know about you but it's refreshing to hear someone be so candid and honest about the same struggles as me and I'm sure a lot of you.
I really want to wake up excited to read my Bible and get a new revelation every time I open the pages but you know I don't. The struggle is real. The guilt is real.
We live in a time where social media can bombard us with perfect looking people and lives when ours seems anything but perfect. When I read how others are so spiritual, look at their many Bible journal entries and appear to be the perfect Christian I can get really down on my self which in turn can make me dwell in His word even less. How sad is that?! It's a vicious cycle and one I think the devil loves to use to keep us from His word.
Shanna's book is perfect if you're feeling like me. It's a call to action and commitment to follow through. She gets right to the point in chapter 1 about all the excuses we make and a call to action to lose the excuses. I think we can all relate to making excuses and yes many are valid but priorities are the key as she points out. We can all carve some time out of day even if it's 5-10 minutes.
I'm committed to losing all my excuses and I'm tweaking my priorities. Usually I have 5-10 minutes before leaving for school that I spend checking emails but I'm going to commit to swapping that time out to spend in the Word and reading the rest of Shanna's book instead of waiting for the end of the day when I all to often make the excuse I'm too tired and just go to bed. Putting my intentions out there so you can hold me accountable and if you declare something out loud you're more likely to follow through. So there you go! ;o)
Who's with me? Imagine the impact we could all have on the people around us not to mention how much better our days would go if we would just take the time and make a commitment to spending time in the Word and forming new habits. I hope you'll pick up your own copy and join in. I'd love to hear how it's impacting you when you do.
