Affirmation of Faith

There is this book out there that I desperately want to read but it scares the ever living daylights out of me. 

I want to be able to read between the lines.

I want to be able to hear Him speak to me.

I want to follow Him like never before.


Yesterday I was forgiven of all my sins. I ate the bread and drank the wine and I was Restored! I thanked Him for all he does in my life, thanked Him for giving up his life and forgiving me of my sins. I really did feel restored … Except there was this little part of me that wondered why I couldn't immerse myself in His word. 

That Book. 

It is the words {that I can't pronounce} and the names {that I can't pronounce} that are holding me back. I feel like I need to consult a dictionary with every other word I read. 

Where Do I Start.

With the first Book? What first book - Old or New? In The Middle? On Page 1567? It makes me feel lost.


So I joined a group of people that wanted to read The Book too! We are in week 3 and I haven't made it past week 1. Still struggling! 

Yesterday though I felt that it was okay. I was trying. I believe. He Loves Me.

He Loves Me!!
