Doing what you wished you had done all along
This year I began a quest to read the bible and understand the words and theology written within these pages that have withstood two thousand years. To not know the bible and to not read the bible shows our heavenly father we don’t care to know more about him. It also shows others that we don’t care about them, the bible, or god. I wished I would have spent more time sooner reading God’s word. Knowing what he wants for my life and spending time in prayer are now critical points in my week. I am trying my hardest to make them daily habits. There are so many situations and biblical characters to learn from. The same issues that existed for God’s people still exist today. I was recently told by a friend that the ten commandments didn’t matter and were meant for people that lived ages ago. My friend wants the bible to fit his lifestyle, but he has it backwards. We are to transform our lives to what is in the holy scritpures. Think about how our world would change if these were obeyed. Christ.

Our country needs God word please read it for yourself show others by doing. When we begin to turn to God we read in the bible that he heals and will hear our prayers. 2 Chronicles 7:14 The ten 15 minutes you spend with God will not be wasted and you won’t regret it. I admit I am now finally doing what I wish I would have been doing all along.
