Best Investment Ever

“I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion.” Proverbs 8:12 (ESV)

If you’re an avid reader like me, then you’ve probably already started your list for 2021.  Flipping through the pages of a great read is one of my fave things to do. And there are so many to hit that list already.  Countless journeys to experience and wisdom to be gained.  Loads of practical tips and stories coming alive right before our eyes.

Last year, I was challenged and inspired by Dream Big (Bob Goff).  Great words and application encouraging us to not settle for anything less than God’s best.  Ripple Effects (Pam Tebow) cheered us on to maximize our God-given opportunities for influence. Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children (Jodie Berndt) invigorated and reignited my conversations with God.  You Can Trust God To Write Your Story (Nancy & Robert Wolgemuth) illustrated unique and intriguing ways God providentially works in the lives of His people. And just this past week, I turned the last page to Becoming Elisabeth Elliot a convicting read of total surrender to God’s plan.

Just a glimpse of what’s been filling my shelves – how about you?  What books encouraged, inspired or challenged you this past year?

Now I totally get it if sitting by a cozy fire or lounging on the beach with a book in hand doesn’t appeal to you.  For some reading is simply not enjoyable.  One of the great reasons I love Audible Books.  To sit still and flip the pages of a book for my husband is not doable so he has listened to numerous books which have enlightened and enriched his thinking.

Whether you’re flipping pages or turning up the volume, we all gain valuable insight from other’s faith walk. Best read I’ve ever read and continue to read is God’s Word.  No matter how many times I’ve encircled those passages, God has fresh insights just for what I need today.  Incredible stories of faith, deep truths, loving guidance  and hope filled encouragement for those moments when life gets hard. Never a dull read – simply put it’s the best investment guaranteed to serve us well if we take it to heart.

So sweet friend release those excuses and dive deep into God’s Word this year.  Paper or audible  – both work great.  And while you’re on the reading journey grab ahold of some other reads which will propel you closer to being all God desires for your life.  Decide now to make 2021 your best year ever!

“Father, we are blessed to have full access to Your Words equipping, transforming and encouraging our hearts.  May we seize all opportunities in 2021 to grow in our walk with You.”


For His Glory
