How Desperate Am I For More of God?

The miles flash as I speed through the desert. In its pre-dawn blush, the sky shimmers, mother-of-pearl. Rugged mountains cut a stark silhouette against the glow.

It’s breathtaking. 

But all I can think about is my rumbling stomach. I’m hungry. So hungry that my stomach's growling complaints fill the entire sound-space of my brain, leaving no room for any type of early morning appreciation of beauty.But I’m also in a time crunch, without even a moment for a pass-through at fast food joint where I could hurriedly snatch a rubbery biscuit loaded with cheese and a bit of overdone egg...

Instead, I gaze across the miles into a desert range rising jagged and bare, and I’m catapulted back to the image which captured my heart just days before. All about Moses and his hollow heart hunger, and how God showed up to feast Moses on the indescribable glory of His presence.

How To Actually Schedule Time To Study The Word-- and stick with it

Confession: this year is the first time in my life I have been consistent with spending every single day in the Word for more than a month. You read that right. Yes, I am passionately in love with Jesus. Yes, I gave my life to Christ when I was 22 and have been chasing Him ever since. Yes, I consistently spent personal time in prayer and worship on the regular, but I never consistently spent time in the Word. Until now. Before I get into what changed for me this time, I want to share with you what was really holding me back: fear. I was afraid. And, I was embarrassed. I didn’t know where to start. I always felt like I didn’t understand the Bible when I read it and I would compare myself to my other Christian friends and feel like I would never know the Word like they did. But, the more time I spent hiding from my Bible, the more my Spirit thirsted for Jesus. Of course, I was spending time in His presence when I spent time in prayer or private worship and in church, but I felt that conviction in my spirit that it wasn’t enough. I knew that in order to go deeper in my relationship with Jesus and to truly KNOW Him, I needed to be in His Word. And, I needed to make sure that it happened and that I stuck to it.
