Earlier this year I was really starting to feel down about rarely reading the Bible and my minimal prayer life. Greg is really great at reading scripture daily but he also has a flexible schedule that allows him to take that time; he has downloaded the Bible to his phone so he can read it in between meetings. I really don’t have the schedule he has, not to mention life feels like one big meeting and it’s all about the girls!
Looking for help, I asked Greg if we could start reading scripture together before we went to bed. This has helped keep me accountable. Rather than just going to sleep or reading other things, Greg has kept me on track. We are using Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals by Shane Claiborne. Every day there is a different scripture to be read, prayers, and information about historical Christians.
This is what I can do for now. I’ve been thinking about placing verses in places around our home so I am meditating more but if I don’t change the verses often enough I stop seeing them. This is no excuse, just something I need to be aware of.
