Keeping the Word Close


Since I have been traveling so much and getting home late in the evenings because of the number of activities I have to do after work I decided it was time to invest in a travel size Bible.  This is the first thing I pack not the last.  I always think to myself if I have the mentality of packing the Bible last it’s as if I am saying I put God last if I have time for Him.

I do have the YouVersion Bible App on my phone and I use it every day for the “verse of the day” and I like the reading plans they offer.  I am still a fan of reading from pages and I enjoy the break from my brightly lit phone.

I do not just carry the bible around I do read it  … I do not just read it I try my best to live it… I have been doing a lot of reading from Romans lately.  Romans 12:9-21

Wanted to share different ways you can keep the Word close.  I know it is easy for me to put God last when life gets extremely busy so I am always trying to find ways to keep His Word close.

    Keeping the Word close and open is so very important! Sounds like we both like to read the Word often as we know that our inner soul needs to keep its focus upon our Maker, Lord & Savior Jesus Christ to glorify Him. There are a lot of beautiful people out in the world, but inner beauty by being Christ centered is the most beautiful.

    Kathleen, you are a great role model for all of us!
