Talk About It


Tuesday night was a good night. 

After going on a nice long walk, I sat on my couch to do some Bible reading and studying. My mind kept wondering to all the other stuff I wanted to accomplish like taking down Christmas decorations (yep, they're all still up), writing blog posts, sending emails, laundry, the list literally could go on and on. I was struggling and worrying about how I was going to get everything done, including finishing my lessons for Wednesday night Bible class. I said something to Jeremy about how I'm having a hard time finding time to do my Bible reading. He pointed out that maybe this is just a road block I have to work through and learn how to make time for study. I closed my eyes said a quick prayer and turned back to my lesson realizing everything else could wait.

A few minutes later, Jeremy was sitting beside me asking me what I was reading about (since he's in the same class as me and all). We just started talking about our lesson, our thoughts, what we believe. It was encouraging, refreshing, and something I truly needed. We talked about how the Bible is simple, yet deep, how everything we need can be found inside.

Basically what I'm saying is talk about it. I can't tell you how much I appreciate having a relationship with Jeremy in which we can talk about things like the Bible and God. It's encouraging, motivating, and helpful. Not only does it strengthen our relationship, it strengthens my relationship with God. 


So, thanks Jeremy for being there for me :) You put it all in perspective for me and I appreciate it. You're the best!
