Last night was date-night. Always my favorite. I love not cooking, I love going out, and I LOVE talking with my husband. After last night I felt really encouraged to stay faithful in reading scripture every day, as much as I can. Sometimes I struggle to see any fruit in my life directly from scripture reading, so I often want to turn to books, sermons, or even house-work, just to see more immediate results.
My husband encouraged me to think of it like this: Its like feeding children. I have no idea how this works, but a peanut butter sandwich here, a plate of spaghetti there, and wow! they grew!!
(ok, mine is still on a milk diet, with a bit of bananas and sweet potatoes thrown in...even more mysterious!!)
But the Bible is the very word of God to me, the good news of Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, it is changing me more into the image of His Son.
But I have to be faithful to just. keep. reading. as if it is food for today. Because that is just what it is!! And as I'm faithful with reading (as I am very faithful with feeding my baby) I will see myself grow, even if its a bit mysterious in the way that works day to day.
Thank God for His word to us!!
