I was listening to a podcast recently where they were speaking about keeping God’s word close to you. The host mentioned that she has key scriptures referenced in her bible but her bible isn’t always with her. She said it never occurred to her to keep those key scriptures in the notes section on her phone.
Ok. Can I tell you that until she said that I didn’t think about that either? That statement was a mind-blowing statement for me. You know, the kinds of statements that are so simple but we make them difficult? How many other things have we seen or heard that on the face of them are ridiculously simple but we make them way to hard?
It’s like those V8 moments. Or when you finally get the joke that everyone else has gotten. Or when you’re dancing and you finally find the beat. Honestly how simple could it be. Our phones have become so much a part of who we are that it would only make sense for us to put those scriptures that have helped us in difficult times within reach.
So, my goal for today is to put at least one important scripture in the notes on my phone as a reference when I’m stressed, or angry, or feeling blah, or when I want to get close to the Lord.
