These are the days!

Yesterday Bro. Ronnie preached a sermon entitled "Finding Real Food in a Fast Food World".
We were reminded that our Bible is a precious source of truth, power and growth. He also outlined ways to use the Bible in our lives. We should embrace God's Word by hearing, reading, studying, memorizing, meditating and applying it.

Not only did we get taught great Bible truths, we also worshipped God with wonderful songs. I was so excited when the instruments began playing "Days Of Elijah". This is one of my all time favorite songs!!! So this morning, as I was having my quiet time, I wanted to hear the words again but I ran into a slight problem. I couldn't remember the words. (hint hint Bro Tom, we need to sing it more!) So I did what anyone would do...I googled them. So excited I began singing, however in a low volume so not to set the dog to howlin' and wake the kids. Then it happened, I got to one line and I stopped. Intrigued, I set out searching the meaning of the phrase. I started reading material about the subject and as I sat with my chin hitting the floor, I craved more. As I dug deeper, the more interested I became. Then wouldn't you know it, my son rounded the corner with a "Hi Mom, what's for breakfast?" so I sat my reading aside, hugged and fed my growing young man. Although I had to be taken away from my studying, believe me I will be returning to that subject. I am consumed by it. Once I have a better handle on my topic of study, I'll try to post something.

God has placed me on a new journey learning about Him and His Word, care to join me?

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee
and out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

Today, God whetted my appetite for His Word by using a line in a song so what are some ways that God intrigues you to study and search His Word?

Diggin' for more today!

Sometimes a book that I am reading will spark an interest in the Bible.
