"The Bible is for you, and it's for right now. It's for you if you've never read it, and it's for you if you have 17 doctorates in theology. It's for the moment you are so overcome with grief that your body forgets to breathe in and out on its own, and it's for the time you really don't have time to open its pages for yourself." - Rachel Meyers
I read this quote while holding Felix in the NICU knowing who I needed to put my trust in but also lost in so many ways. It was toward the end of his month stay there. I hadn't dug into this book in a while, and I remember a disconnect. It was as if I was going through the motions of everyday life. Stuck in a place and time I can't understand. But I did it. I read this quote, opened up to Psalm 16, and read "Oh God, for in you I take refuge."
The Bible is for you
This book is alive and active. It will speak to you if you've read it once or a million times. It will convict, enlighten, and strengthen you. All you need to do is open it, and trust God to do the rest. My situation didn't change that afternoon, but my heart and mind felt a peace that hadn't been there in far too long.
