Have you ever been stuck on the side of the road waiting for a service truck to come help you out? It can be frustrating to say the least, especially if you’re going somewhere important.
It can be this way in our Bible reading as well. Life can become hectic and we get behind. Or we can be reading a section of Scripture we just don’t understand. Regardless of which you’re facing, the important thing to remember is the privilege it is to travel at all. Even where we’re stuck, there’s a good chance God has something for you to discover in this place. You would never walk away and leave your car stuck in a ditch. Neither should we walk away from the Bible plan God has marked out for us this year.
What is your current struggle? Where are you stuck? Why not comment and ask those of us who are traveling with you? It may be that someone is able to help lift you out of the rut.
Let’s be an encouragement to each other.
So helpful! David and I are reading through DA Carson’s “For the Love of God.” I had a challenging time being consistent before I had children and, no surprise!, it’s even more difficult now that I do. BUT I feel so much more grace than I used to – no guilt, no condemnation. I love the opportunity to dive into His word with my husband beside me and then discuss what we’ve read. It’s really neat to have this immediate perspective, you know? So, I guess just the obvious need for consistency! =)
For so long, mornings have been the best time for me to read and meditate (I’ve also been listening to the Scriptures online as I am reading, which I have found helpful). But mornings are the most difficult for me, from a health perspective, and once I get going, there’s so much to do! It’s be hard to be consistent! I’m having to learn a whole new routine.
I think God does this from time to time to keep us from being dependent on a method or routine. Don’t you?
