With everything I have going on these days I find it pretty hard to consistently read the Word. As well intentioned as I am, after working 12+ hour days and then spending time with the wife and kids, I usually don't feel much like flipping any pages. I know it's a shame to say it, but it's the truth. While I don't watch much TV, it seems that my time is constantly being vied for from outside sources. So my dose of the Word usually comes in the form of church, music, audio sermons or emails from friends or the office Bible thumper, and God forbid you end up on their distribution list. I mean, I love the Lord and all, but how many emails can you get in a week that require you to prove your faith by forwarding to all your friends. Good Grief! But that's not what I wanted to talk about. As I was saying, I'm finding it challenging to get my Jesus on these days, and believe me I've even looked into audio versions of the Bible, but after a while the readers voice began to bore me, but it seems someone was feeling my pain.
