Interesting just before I saw this posted this morning in my email I was thinking, Why am I up so early. Then as I started my Bible study for the day I was filled with joy and happiness. Remembering when I would make the excuses that I didn’t have time to read the scriptures everydat, let alone study them.
It was because back then I was just doing my checklist. Doing what my spiritual leaders told me I needed to do. There was no passion in it.
You see, I wasn’t working on my personal relationship with Jesus Christ. That wasn’t on my radar, I just figured that if I read once in while and prayed once in a while, Jesus would have to bless me.
Wow, really, like Jesus owed me something? I so grateful now (maybe because I’m getting older) that I desired to be feed, so I can be closer to Jesus. When I even miss a day, I feel so tired and weak in the world.
So, this really hit home for me today.
