Thank you for nurturing us with Your truth.
Search our hearts today, Father. Remove any un-forgiveness, for we cannot fully pursue a life of love in Christ when we are withholding forgiveness. Convict us of our sins and the habits that hold us back from experiencing Your peace. We don’t want to be wasteful people who throw whole plates of food in the trash, so let us not walk away unaffected when we close the Bible. Sew Scripture into the fabric of who we are becoming. Inspire in us a desire to slowly savor every last crumb, knowing it’s the nutrition we need to fuel our bodies, minds, and lives in the way You intended them to function. We want to crave Your Word, Father.
God, You are so good to us. Great is Your faithfulness. Today, we wait in faithful expectation of a fresh revelation from Your Word. Bless this time we have set aside to read the Bible. Stretch our minutes and calm our surroundings. In a pocket of pure bliss, we get to experience the One True God, Our Creator, Our Father, Our Savior, and Our Friend. Let Your will be done in our lives.
