In 2015 I pondered the cross for forty days through sketches and studying great works of art about the crucifixion. My heart was moved by the experience. I had intended to create a painting but in the end settled on writing this meditation. I hope it is a blessing to you.

I would encourage you to not only read but to listen. I offer a brief introduction in the podcast before going into the meditation. Blessings.

The Cross

The cross was not a piece of jewelry, wall ornament, poster, or tattoo. The cross was not beautiful. The cross was a blood-stained electric

Dry times, times of feeling a loss of God’s presence, are inevitable in the Christian walk.  All of the historic saints expressed in their writings periods of longing to hear God’s voice and to feel God’s peace.  Spiritual droughts occur for a variety of reasons.

  • Neglect of the relationship: If you are not investing time in drawing near to God don’t be surprised if God seems hard to find.  God hasn’t moved, but your priorities, time, and attention may have pushed a gap into your awareness of God’s presence.

Welcome to the first ever Five Minute Friday podcast!

Every Friday I’m going to release a quick discipleship tip. Each post will be short, five to ten minutes at most. Now for today’s tip.

Lessons I have Learned about Reading the Bible after 35 years of Daily Reading [Episode 28]


 

 
A recent reader, Kristy, shared the following comment,

I have never found the right Bible reading plan, so have tried to read at my own pace and feel that even though I am not following a plan, that I am behind simply because I still have a lot to read by the end of this year and I have this thing in my head that I have to finish the Bible by December 31.

1. DON’T: Use ink.
DO: Use colored pencils.

I use colored pencils because they will not bleed through the pages and they give you lots of color options. Pens tend to smear or bleed through and can make a mess of your bible. Also, colored pencils can be erased if you make something incorrectly.

When I first started taking notes in my Bible, I mostly marked words and phrases that grabbed my eye. I then read somewhere, that you should never highlight something unless you write a note about it. I did not do this all the time, but I started underlining, highlighting and adding a few notes here and there.  Often times, I added asterisks with footnotes.
