I don’t know how it is with you when you read Scripture, but often my mind wanders.
You know, one second I am reading about Moses on Mt. Sinai, and the very next second I am wondering where my black yoga pants are and why my mail is now being delivered at 3:00 instead of noon! Can I get a witness?
Sometimes focus is hard.
So, here is an easy (and by easy, I mean easy) way to stay focused as you read Scripture.
We’ve all heard it before, but who said it first? Who said you should spend a prescribed amount of time with a devotional book, prayer journal and a cup of coffee each day before the sun rises in order to have a quiet time?
What if you have a baby who won’t sleep through the night?
What if you hot flash most of the night and getting up at 6 AM sounds impossible since you just fell asleep for the fourth time at 4 AM?
What if you can’t think clearly in the morning? What if you are always surrounded by kids, employees, co-workers or family?
And, what if you can’t have the picturesque quiet time experience because you don’t like coffee?! (I’m kidding, I’m kidding).
