Small Successes #15

Small Successes #15 June 10, 2010
Small Successes is hosted at Faith and Family Live!
Unpacked after our vacation. Cleaned the bathroom and did the dishes this week. And I am almost caught up in laundry. It feels good to be back on top of things for the most part after the chaos of a trip.
Spent some awesome time reconnecting with my Hubby almost every evening this week. Which was a good thing because he will be working every night for the rest of the week. Goodbye Hubby! See you on Monday. 🙁
I’ve decided that I really want to start reading my Bible again. It’s hard enough to get time with God each day when you are a mother of 3 small children. Add all the questions I have about God, and I find myself not wanting to read my bible at all.  I read the bible daily my entire childhood, and all the way up until 2 years ago I still made an effort to get to it consistently every week. But questioning God, trying to find out who He really is, and why I should serve Him, has had me so frustrated about bible passages I don’t understand that I just stopped trying.
I want to try again. But I don’t think I am ready to read the bible by itself yet, something tells me I wouldn’t stick with it. I’ve always despised Devotional/ Bible study books, but I’m starting to wonder if that is because the only ones I was ever exposed to were Evangelical and Fundamentalist, I no longer think inside that box.
So I’m asking you ladies, if any of you have a favorite Devotional book, that helps you to open up to God again, and keeps you at it, Please share! I would love read my bible again, but I am a little overwhelmed by all the devotionals out there! Please recommend some good ones for me to look into.
