Ben Overby whacked me over the head!
Not really, but he gave me a “Duh! Why do I always forget that?” kind of reminder with his latest blog entry, Take Time to Meet God.
So I’m taking time to meet my Father. I’m going to give up a little sleep time to read in the morning, and then pray and chew on His Word while I run. I’m going to try also to incorporate it during my workday as well, reading different material.
Right now I’m going to be chewing on Genesis in the mornings, along with Walter Brueggemann’s Genesis commentary from the Interpretation series. During the day, I’m going to be wrestling with Paul’s word to the Christians in Thessalonike, being aided by Ben Witherington’s 1 & 2 Thessalonians – A Sociao-Rhetorical Commentary.
Hopefully, I will find much to blog about as I work through these texts. Please keep me in your prayers, that I might find the discipline and perseverance to grow in my daily relationship with my Father in the Heavens.
in HIS love,
