How To Not Be Overwhelmed By The Bible

A Little Portion of scripture memorized is more powerful than a great portion scanned so quickly and forgotten. A Morning Prayer

How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of your Word. Psalm‬ ‭119‬:‭9-16‬ MSG

The first time I opened the bible my best friend gave me, was the first time I ever opened a bible at all. I was 22 years old and I was so overwhelmed. I didn’t know where to begin reading and didn’t understand any of what I was reading! It had seemed like I was late to the game… I felt like it was too late for me to be a Christian. I could not have been more wrong! If you’re feeling overwhelmed I want to encourage you to memorize just one bible verse, maybe the one above. Meditate on it, run it over in your head again and again. A little portion of scripture memorized is more powerful than a great portion scanned so quickly and forgotten. As you begin to read little by little, the Holy Spirit will illuminate the passages for you and you’ll be enlightened by the words. It’s truly amazing how it all just starts to make sense.

#AMORNINGPRAYER: Good morning, God. The bible can be really intimidating but I know it is full of so much wisdom for me. I pray what I read in it today enlightens me, with the help of the Holy Spirit. I pray the words are imprinted on my soul, felt in my heart and understood by my mind. Amen
