How To Fit The Bible Into Your Life



How do you fit the Bible into your life?

Stop.

Right away.
From the daily struggle of trying to fit your Bible into your life.

You heard me.


Stop.

What?  Really?

But...?


Yes... stop.

I speak out loud... to myself... in my heart... and I get it.  Yes!  That's it!
Traci - Stop trying to fit your Bible into your life... but live in a way that the Bible becomes your life.  Your very breath.  Your next thought.  Your next touch.

See me in the smiles and in the tears.


Touch me in the times when ordinary becomes extraordinary.



Taste and see that I am good, He says in spilled forth, red lettered WORD.


Hear the Living in a baby's coo and a mother's cry to you at 3 am.  "I don't know how to be a Mommy, dear Lord!  Help me!"

Smell me as your true worship, on bended knee during the mundane is lifted up like a sweet aroma.  
You see... we need to stop trying to fit the bible into our life... and make it our life!

Oh Taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that puts his trust in me. Psalm 34:8

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear. 1 Peter 3:15

  1. What a touching post. You are such a great inspiration, and correct in every word you posted. Our everyday lives should be lived by the wonders that surround us (God's country, God's world, God's creations). My day will be great now. Thank you.
