I have heard christians use the phrase "dry season" before, but I don't think I knew what it meant. Now I may have an idea...
Yesterday I went thru my Bible Study homework like it was just that, homework. It was as if I was doing my English homework. And when I closed the workbook, my heart sank because I felt like I had brushed my hand over the Bible cover, but had not let my study take root. And I felt parched.
What is the point of Bible Study, if we are not letting the study change us? If we don't allow the Breath of GOD to read over us, who wouldn't be dry.
This is a new experience for me, and I hated it. I felt so ashamed that I had such a casual time in study, I am going to go over my homework again.
A couple of things that came to mind as to why this happened:
I was tired.
I was preoccupied
I didn't prepare and pray and allow GOD to focus me.
I don't want the scriptures I take in to be like billboards I see on the freeway. Fleeting and barely there in my memory. I want them to be rooted in my heart and spirit!
If you want to make Jesus your Lord & Savior,, all you have to do is pray: "Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God, You were resurrected from the grave by our Heavenly Father. Thank you for dying on the cross to save me. I repent of my sins and ask Your forgiveness. Please give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always." Amen.
