It has been laying on the shelf for two months–untouched.
No pages have been read, no verses memorized.
The tank inside of me that used to be so full is now running on empty.
Life, work, and myself have all gotten in the way of reading it.
I am talking about my Bible.
I am so ashamed of admitting this.
My Bible has been totally neglected for a while. I allowed everything around me to take the place of me reading it. Sleep has taken over my quiet time in the morning. Life has taken over the afternoon time that I could spend with it. Work was taking over all the extra time I *might* have spent reading.
But not anymore.
Life has taken a different turn lately and I choose to read and soak in what God is saying. I choose to look to Him again where I have not in the past. I need His word to soothe my anxiety.
Is God mad because I have not read? Is God gonna punish me because I have neglected Him?
The answer is NO! He misses me, but He is not going to punish me nor does He hate me. He will once again envelope me in His arms when I come to Him. He is waiting for me.
He is also waiting for you. What are you waiting for?
