The need to read the scriptures
For light and truth then enters
God's love is nourishing!
The lessons are not ancient
They are needed for our day
To list'ning ears grown patient
Each message now awaits
The path they pave is narrow
By Christ made straight and true
May it, like a pure arrow,
Prick your heart to feel anew!
May faith abound as you read
May repentance be your call
What light and truth do you need?
God knows the great or small!
I had Improve the Shining Moments in my head as I wrote this. How appropriate! May you and I have shining moments by reading the scriptures.
I had not read the scriptures for several days. I just felt empty inside. People I love were hurting and deep in drama. A youth went into a 72 hour lock up for suicidal actions and another almost went to jail for absolute untruths- both in consequence of a person that is bipolar and can manipulate lies in dangerous ways. Yes I need the scriptures! I was reminded of this when I read an email subscription: Daily Messages, I recommend you get it at: https://www.lds.org/daily-messages?lang=eng
Make the Exercise of Faith Your First Priority

"Don't yield to Satan's lie that you don't have time to study the scriptures. Choose to take time to study them. Feasting on the word of God each day is more important than sleep, school, work, television shows, video games, or social media. You may need to reorganize your priorities to provide time for the study of the word of God. If so, do it!"
