This blog primarily contains devotions that I have written in response to my own daily Bible reading. I am a rather practical person and you will see that I take a rather practical approach to implementing my Bible reading into my daily life. It is my hope and prayer that these simple devotions will be an encouragement to all who read them to dig deeper into the the Word of God. There is no more effective of a tool than the scriptures to help us set our mind on the things of the Spirit.  It is when we are consistently setting our minds on the things of the Spirit that we will live consistently in the Spirit. May God richly and abundantly bless you.
