There’s reading then there’s really reading where you study & absorb what you’re reading, books we call a good read, books that inspire , books that encourage digging a little deeper by referencing certain words, studying a topic, knowing my love for books a friend passed on a few from her collection, with titles like
KNOWING GOD”S WORD
HOSTING THE PRESENCE
THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH
THE FIRE OF HIS HOLINESS
WHICH NONE CAN SHUT
NEST ABOVE THE ABYSS
I can’t wait to get into them & share with you what they’re all about, how about you? how you like to read your books? do you like to read? do you truly love to read or just you feel you have to read?
we sometimes read the paper to be reading it to see what’s going on, we read through magazines mostly awing at the pictures, skipping most of the articles, we all read in some form or fashion, when it comes to God’s word is reading along with the pastor the only time you read it, do you feel you have to read it because,you’re told to read it or do you love to read it,absorb it, single out certain words dig out the meaning
for example say you single out the word home you find it’s meaning a lot different than a house, what does the word home mean to the Virtuous women in proverbs, a home provides shelter, isn’t this what the Mimi nit woman did?
I’d like to encourage you to read more, to absorb what you read & look at words in a different light, you’ll be amazed how deep reading can take you so keep a notebook, pen & dictionary close by & begin to feed your soul!
