Snuggling and Reading the Best Book Ever

In the fall many of us like to grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate along with our favorite blanket and snuggle in front of the fireplace to read a good book.

This fall, why don’t we consider picking up the best book of all and snuggle with God.

Need a place to start?

If you don’t want to read the Bible all the way through from the beginning, something you don’t have to wait until January 1 to start by the way, you can begin reading in Psalms.

I love to read from this book and make a list of who God is to me, for He is my stength, my deliverer, my rock, my protector, and my salvation. I’m reminded of the things that He does for me in that He cleanses me, teaches me, loves me, comforts me, forgives me, and He hears my prayers (each and every one of them.)

Oh, and to get a hold of WHO HE IS–merciful, full of compassion, gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in truth.

And that is just one book of the Bible. We can read about family relationships, love stories, battles, personal struggles and triumps. You need wisdom, guidance, or direction? It can be found within the pages of this amazing book.

But most of all, we get to read about our Savior, Jesus Christ and why He came. Jesus Himself tells us in Luke 4:18-19.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Fall is right around the corner, so grab your favorite blanket and the best book ever–The Bible. You will never regret one moment that you spend snuggling with God.
