My Grandmother (MawMaw) loved to read God’s Word. Every day!
I remember our visits to her home and I loved watching her read. I loved watching her pray! She just sat down and did it! Even with a mob of kids around. She just did it!
I was pondering today what happened to her Bible. Who was the lucky one to receive that treasure. I remember looking inside the front cover and seeing all these dates written down inside. One day I asked her why she did that.
Her words – “Each date is the start of me starting over – from beginning to end – that I have read God’s Word. God’s treasures!”
Let me tell you – there were a lot of dates written down.
I pray that who ever received Grandma’s Bible knows its value – not only because it is God’s Word – but it has marks of one who truly loved Him and knew Him.
I am walking through a devotional – 100 Days to Brave. I am on Day 17 – The more I dig into the Word for myself, the more I will hunger for it.
Don’t be afraid to do it for yourself – Dig in! Get to know Him!
My Song. My Prayer. Is that you would know and understand what a treasure you hold – when you hold the Word of God and read it. Read it for yourself. I pray the words of this song touches deep down into your soul today and that you will feel the Presence of God.
I am blessed.
