I want to share the single most important and powerful thing that changed my life.
My Daily Bible
This is a picture of my Bible. I began reading it on June 13, 1998 and have read through God's word every year since. This Bible has become the one thing I would grab in a fire or flood that MUST be saved. It's also become a family heirloom. I record events in the margin as a memory stone of God's faithfulness and scribble notes to my Savior among the pages. Reading these memories every year is a tremendous faith builder. I have underlined passages and their are stains of coffee as well as tears. My daughter has asked that this Bible be listed as her inheritance in our will. (She cracks me up)
Through the most unusual culmination of circumstances my mother gave me this Daily Bible which she purchased for me while at a Women of Faith Event. This Bible is a 15-minute daily reading plan. It includes a portion from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. You read through the entire Bible in a year. I've read it through every year since 1998. The WORD abides in my today because of this faith practice.
In 1998, I was able to keep my dentist appointment, my hair appointment but made little effort to keep my appointment with the God of the universe. But, I wanted lasting change in my marriage and my faith, so I knew I needed to invite God into my life every single day. I needed to know what He had to say about life.
I needed to read His Word.
So, here is the hard part. I set my alarm for 5:30 a.m. every morning and rose bleary-eyed, to meet with the Lord. I was determined to keep this appointment. At that time in my life I was working in Corporate America. I had an extraordinarily busy schedule. However, the alarm would sound and I shuffled to the coffee pot. Then picked up my Bible, my journal and there I met with Jesus.
I invited God into my life through His transforming words. I was forever changed and healed in so many places.
So, I ask this question of you. Are you struggling in your marriage? Are you struggling with a child or with your employment? Are you unhappy, disillusioned?
Then this is your invitation to healing.
God is asking you to sacrifice your sleep to find peace, contentment, healing and a relationship that will ROCK your world and leave you forever changed.... for the better.
Order your own Daily Bible.
Change your marriage.
Change your perspective.
Change your life.
Be blessed, Lynn
Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.
This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!
