Open Your Bible
Ok, I admit I am a book study girl. I love reading through one book and relating it to the surrounding texts, historical information and even the OT. Open Your Bible was not a book text, although you could call it one, technically.
Although I didn’t feel the Spirit move me as much as I have in the past, I really enjoyed the scriptures from all over the Bible on how we are to revere, be confident, read the Word broadly, with intention, emotion and intellectually, engage the Bible as a guide and the whole story, be responsible when we read from it, and understand the permanence of the text.
And my favorite scripture from the study was on the last day, there is even a lock screen of this text. For me it sums up exactly what the Bible is to me.
I know I have changed how I approach my Bible each day and do so tenderly. Without distraction or worry about what the day will bring me. My biggest fault currently is my lack of prayer before diving into the Word. I simply grab my coffee and begin searching for the scriptures.
