I can be the first to admit that reading the bible is usually very low on my priorities list. Not because I dislike it, nor do I lack a desire to be closer to God. It’s just hard sometimes. It’s hard to comprehend the magnitude of the words. It also makes my heart swell up when I do sit down and focus on what I’m reading. I just have to do it. I find reading a brief devotional much more manageable and easy to process.
The 5 books of the Psalms have always interested me, and I always find overwhelming truth no matter which psalm I am reading. So what better way to get in the habit of reading the bible the actually doing it consistently through a whole section! I think the psalms are a great starting place, since the beginning of the books are typically shorter.
I decided to read a psalm everyday and write about my thoughts on it, what I learn from the quiet time with God, and how I can apply it to my life. I will also do my best to link phone screen savers of my favorite verses for you all. I find having the screen saver helps me remember the verses better!
This series will be mixed into my other blog post and will start next Monday November 21st. If you have any advice, or have a favorite psalm let me know below!
