Reading the Bible is so important
I grew up in church, and always understood the importance of reading the Bible. I knew that the Bible was God’s Word and by reading it, we hear God speaking to us. Nevertheless, I often found myself either rushing through my daily Bible reading or skipping it all together. To be honest, my quiet time became just one more thing to tick off my to-do list.
C.S Lewis wrote, “It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussings and frettings; coming in out of the wind.” –C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
I knew there was more to
- What Bible passage we read that day,
- A thought or application of what we had read.
Over time, as I allow God to speak through His Word each day, I found myself writing more and getting excited to sit down and enjoy my quiet time. I was passionate about listening to God speak freshly to me through His Word and encouraging other to do the same.
In 2011, I started writing my devotions on this daily blog. Suddenly, people from all over the world began to read my devotions, send messages of encouragement and share how God had spoken to them. This accountability to others has helped me so much.
My daily goal is to enjoy life with Jesus. To read God’s Word and allow Him to speak through it. My prayer is that somehow this site will also help you you to have a fresh passion for God’s Word and enjoy every day with Jesus.
More about me
I was born and brought up in South Wales, UK. I married my wife Dani in March 2012 and in Septemeber 2015, our son Timothy was born.
I am an elder at my home church ‘Park Baptist Church’ in Merthyr Tydfil. I have attended this church since birth and I am truly grateful for all the people who have invested in me and the opportunities I have been given to serve and learn. I run the Gurnos Christian Centre, reaching the community of Gurnos with the gospel.
A major changing point in my life was meeting a dear friend of mine, Pio Carvalho and him inviting me to travel to Brazil and visit his church Comunhão Cristã ABBA in 2001. Through the church in Brazil, God radically changed my life, forming me into the person I am today. Since then God has led me back to Brazil on other occasions as well as all over Europe and the World.
Every day is an adventure, and this is the way I love it. I have really had so many incredible experiences and maybe one day when I get a chance I shall try to write them all down and to share with you
