I have recently been reading the autobiography of missionary wife Rosalind Goforth, entitled Climbing. In it she writes,
“The Bible has always, since my conversion when a child of twelve, been a treasured companion. In the years when the children were small, with incessant calls upon me, I was unable, like my husband, to give hours a day to Bible study. I came to take the Bible as God’s Word to me, often taking some promise for the day on which to lean. Sometimes, however, I dug into the Word with a concordance to find out what the Bible had to say on some matter on which at the time I needed help. I have before me as I write over forty outlines of such studies.”
Everything in life comes in stages. No matter the stage, we can still spend valuable time in God's Word!
