One of my goals for 2015 is to me more intentional with my time. I want to be present in the moments that take place throughout the day, but even more so, I want to see God’s presence in these moments. I want to KNOW God’s heart, and I want to be His hands and feet all day long, everyday.
I have always had a relationship with my maker, I have also always really struggled with spending time daily at His feet. To be brutally honest, it’s always been boring to me.
After attending christian schools my entire childhood, reading the bible feels like reading a textbook. It’s not alive to me, and I HATE that. How can the words of my God feel so dead in my heart as I read them? How can I possibly know God’s heart when his very word bores me?
I passionately LOVE my God with all my heart. I hunger for more of Him every day, and it grieves me that I do not find life in reading God’s word. This is why I’ve decided to join Take Me Deeper.
Every week, for a year there will be a new bible verse to read as well as a devotional to accompany it. Then throughout the week we are to create a piece of art inspired by the verse. I know this is going to be a challenge for me. I have yet to stick with something like this for the entire year, but I really hope that I do. I hope that it helps me find a renewed hunger for reading the bible. I also hope it helps me learn to hear God’s voice in creating art.
