Finally caught up with all the reading I was behind on in my year-long Bible reading Plan. 1&2 Samuel and 1&2 Kings is a LOT of ancient history.
I know – this is the Word of God. God wants us to study this and to understand Him better through reading His word.
But honestly (and God already knows this because He knows everything about me, sigh) … I still need to pray for His help in coming to learn what He wants me to learn from these parts of the Old Testament.
Mostly what I’ve been learning so far is the discipline of staying awake through lots of ancient battles and wars and sins and genealogy and specifications for building a temple, etc., etc.
God … I’m not trying to be disrespectful. Its just hard for me to be excited about this stuff. Praying for Your continued guidance in opening my heart to what You want me to learn from this part of Your word.
