Raegan Reading or Actually Reading? You Tell Me

Hey guys! How is everyone today? Good first couple of weeks of the new year!

I know I am staying busy and that is what we are going to be talking about today; The craziness of life. I will be completely honest with you. Life is wild, and keeps me moving. 

For me , I try to stay in the Word daily. This year my new years resolution was to dig deeper into the Word. However, this didn’t last very long.  

Quite recently Seth asked me if I should read it more. I tried to tell him that I did, but I came to the realization that even though I read it, I don’t “read it”. It wasn’t until this week when I realized what I am reading is either something I knew pretty well so I just read it to read it, or I just didn’t retain the information. I really took a step back and thought about what Seth asked me,

“If I really read it, or if I “Raegan read it” ” What “Raegan read it” means is I skim it and don’t remember anything  I read. I realized that I was Raegan reading my Bible so I started really reading it. I got so much more into the Word this week, I learned so much more from it! Not to brag or say I’m better than anyone, but I have spent probably five hours in the Bible the past two days and it has played such a giant role this week. 

I am going to be honest , this week has been a bunch of ups and downs. However, my spending a lot of time in my Bible has made a huge difference in my energy. Yesterday, I was really negative about my hip. I was at a point where I wanted to cut off my leg. Then I read my Bible and 3 hours later I was smiling when I talked about my hip. 

The verse I have known for awhile but it really hit home this week

“He says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” -Psalm 46:10

This made such a difference as just a reminder that God is there for me and I need to be still. I need to remember that and it honestly was a game changer. I really read my Bible this week and it helped me so much! 

I challenge you this week to intentionally read the Bible, and not just “Raegan read”.

Thanks for poppin in,

Raegan
