Have you ever found yourself discouraged after reading your Bible? Do you often set unmet expectations or rules for yourself to follow in what your devotional time should look like? Maybe you do not know where to begin or burnt out struggling to understand the scripture? Feel zero shame friends, whether you are a seasoned or just beginning your walk with Jesus, this is a battle every believer has encountered.
The Bible is a living, breathing, love letter and roadmap for you to use and explore in depth. Even stronger than the opposition of the enemy trying to keep you away the Word is God’s love for answering your prayer asking for wisdom in understanding it!! The Holy Bible was written for YOU!
On this episode of ‘Still With You’ Carla K. Whitehead, author of one of my favorite devotionals, Anchored in Faith: Trusting the Character of God, dives in sharing practical ways in how we can understand scripture, get more out of our time in the Word. Sometimes it is as simple as getting your hands on a helpful app or giving yourself a little extra grace. As Carla says, we do not enter the world knowing how to drive four wheels! There is true beauty in every step of the journey.
Writing is one of Carla’s favorite ways to connect and there is something about being loved by Jesus that she can’t keep to herself! While being an incredible author she is also a licensed counselor, practicing in Mississippi, where she was is from and blessed to reside. I hope you love connecting with her and listening to her story.
