Reading the Word is a series of devotionals gleaned from the Bible. I’m hoping these simple Christian teachings will be helpful for believers at every stage. For now, I don’t have a schedule but if you subscribe I will email you every time a new one is posted.
Admittedly, I haven’t been reading the Bible much as of late. A disheartening pattern has emerged in my life: when things are going smoothly I forget about God and cruise along, allowing prayer and Bible study to become intermittent chores instead of the life-giving disciplines they were intended to be. But inevitably, struggles arise and I run back to God, seeking help and expecting to be rescued. I read passages like Psalm 86 and believe it’s as simple as asking and receiving. I wait with my hand out believing that little is required of me.
