I’ve not enjoyed studying so much in my life! And to think it would be Bible study that I am enjoying is far from the imagination even just 10 years ago.
Growing up in a Catholic convent, Bible study was a gruelling chore. I only knew the Scriptures for the exam questions.
I will still need to sit my exam at the end of Holy Yoga retreat. But today, Scripture study is far from gruelling. It is a joy; a passion. I read and re-read the same passages over. I turn every page of the Bible like an inquisitive, curious child fascinated by the characters of Narnia.
The more I delve into the depths of The Word, the more I realise how little I am, how little I know, how much more I need to learn and most importantly, how much more I need to LOVE.
It’s true that when you are inquisitive and curious, you open doors to learning. Every day, I am learning something new. Learning is a humbling experience and a journey that we should all embark on, every day and for the rest of our lives.
“Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your statutes! With my lips I declare all the rules of your mouth. In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.” Psalms 119:12-16
Thank you, Jesus, for bringing me here and your love and continued guidance on my journey.
