We spend hours blog hopping and reading each other’s blogs; but do we read God’s blog??
I enjoy the ministry of blogging and the time it takes is a blessing. My focus is sharing what the Lord has placed on my heart. In the course of a day as I write and read other ladies’s posts I have read many Bible verses and content lifting the Lord Jesus up and encouraging my heart.
It is easy to figure I have read plenty of Scripture and forgo my quiet time with the Lord.
When I read my Bible, I often am reminded of the thought that the Bible is God’s blog written for me. It is divided up into ‘series’ and ‘posts’ that are bite sized and just the right amount to read even when you are a busy mom.
Why do we neglect our time with the Lord so easily?
Many bloggers write a ‘series’ on topics such as house cleaning, parenting, or meal planning. The ideas are endless. Even though I read many blogs and comment to encourage other bloggers, I am drawn into their topic and blessed in return.
Do we guard our quiet time with the Lord as closely as we guard our blogging time?
God has divided the Bible up into ‘series’ in a similar way as we divide our topics up in blogging. It draws readers in and brings them back to read some more. In the Bible there are series on kings, the life of Jesus, the epistles, and you get the idea.
I often see each chapter in the Bible like it is a post from God Himself to me (and you.) They are just the right length that even a busy mom can read them without neglecting her duties that are pulling on her. Even if you want to read systematically through the Bible it is only a few chapters a day and is do-able.
But did we skip God’s blog today to read blogs on the bloggisphere?
Just a thought.
God be Praised,
