{Encouraging Words} Giving God Priority

encouraging words || 31 Days of Living Well || TeriLynneUnderwood.com/blog

It’s so easy to get distracted by all the things on our lists and all the people in our lives. But living well has to start with an intimate relationship with Christ. While I firmly believe there is no such thing as a perfect quiet time, I just as firmly stand on the truth that we all need to devote time each day to prayer and reading our Bibles.

Maybe you’ve struggled with this … there have been times in my life when I have as well.  But know this, it’s worth the effort it takes to get into the habit. Start reading a chapter of Proverbs every day or maybe a few verses from the Gospel of John or Paul’s letter to the Philippians.  Just start!

But know this, your relationship with God won’t grow just because you read your Bible every day … He wants us to do what it says, to devote ourselves to pleasing Him, to seek His glory and not our own.  He’s called us to be living sacrifices, remember? And out of that obedience, we find the abundant life He offers.
