I started this blog, in part, as a way to bridge my two worlds. The world of advertising which is governed by deadlines, revenue and a fast paced lifestyle with the world of ministry which is ruled by patience, generosity and peace. One of the ways I stay grounded is by taking time each morning to read the Bible and pray. I usually journal my prayers prior to reading and then try to write down what speaks to me from the passage of scripture that day. Often what I read will correspond to what I had been praying about and I find these times to be like conversations with God. I’m currently following the devotional calendar from Life Beautiful Magazine which will allow me to read the entire Bible by January of next year. A devotional calendar is a great starting point if you have never read the Bible before or even if you read it often but are looking for a new spiritual discipline.
