Reading the Bible is not something that I do everyday, but occasionally I will pull it out and journal on a certain chapter or verse. I have found that through doing that, there are a vast number of wondrous quotes that spark something inside of me. They take me on adventures I thought I could never take. By focusing on it more closely, I am able to see through new eyes and more deeply reflect on what it is trying to say to me.
Even through the most general or weird verses you may run into, each has something unique and special to say to you in particular. And that may look different from another person’s perspective. It is just your own view on what the Lord is speaking to you. In saying, of the verses are not straight forward, but if you dig deeper the truth is soon revealed.
