Making time for the Bible

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually read the Bible. I always wanted to read it, but I would always find myself glaring at it from across the room as I watched tv. Finally I started reading it, but I just couldn’t find a consistent time for me to read the Bible. However, if God could make time for me, I decided I had to meet him as well.

After some trial and error I found out what time worked best for me. Now you could read the Bible as soon as you get up. I typically do that. I like to know that I have God the first few minutes of my day and pray right after. But sometimes I wake up late and it just doesn’t happen. And you know what? That’s okay.

If that occurs you can just switch it up that day and read the Bible later in the evening. Sometimes I like to read the Bible for 10-30 mins right before bed because I’m able to focus on what God is saying to me and his word calms me down.

Whatever you do, just pick the time of day that works best for you. It can be morning or night. Or it could be during your lunch break or during one of your 15 minute breaks. But do it for you. Everyone’s relationship with God is different, so your time with God may look different than my time. At the beginning I was got hung up on what other people were doing and whether I was doing it right. IT DOESN’T MATTER!

What matters is that you are reading the Bible and that you are establishing a relationship with God. That’s what’s important. So carve out how ever many minutes you can, I like 10-30 mins and just see what God wants to share with you during that time. I guarantee you, he will show you something that you needed to see or know.

Do you make time for God? If so how do you do that?
