No more snack, I am missing my meal size Bible.

I don't know what your QUIET times look like?  At the start of the year, I really pondered and prayed about starting another "through the year" Bible reading plan.  Some kind person said, no where in the Bible is it stated that you must read through the whole thing.

So, I chewed on that tidbit of information.  And, that person was totally right.  I couldn't find it.

Consequently, I decided to chew on the Word instead of reading a bunch of chapters from the Bible.  I gave myself the freedom to read just a bit and meditate on it.

It is nice concept, but, I found out that my time with my heavenly Father turned more into a quick fast food instead of a lingering healthy meal of His Word (which is the bread of life).

So, after my wonderful journey of "Contemplating the Cross" by Tricia Rhodes- 40 day journey prior to Easter, I began again a more substantial meat WORD intake. I am going back to the One year plan by Christ Church of the Valley.   I know it is not stated in the Bible, but for me He speaks so clearly when I read and just hear from Him.

The chewing or meditating on scripture comes when I walk away and reflect throughout the day what He has said.
