Not really. I started a Beth Moore Bible study this summer, and I am not going to complete it. This is odd for me because one, I am a complete Beth Moore junkie who adores her writing style, vulnerability and knowledge of the Word and two, because I am a rule follower and task-oriented person. Many moons ago, I would have made sure I finished every single lesson of any type of Bible study. And then I would have smugly walked into a group of women with my I’m not going to use the excuse of my children attitude for not finishing the discussion questions. I was that woman. And I didn’t like her. These days, I am lucky, even though I don’t believe in luck, to sit down and have a dedicated handful of minutes to dive into the Word of God without an interruption from a little version of Chris Beall. I can’t remember the last time I actually got on my knees in prayer but can tell you that I’ve thrown more one liners at my Heavenly Daddy than a comedian. Many of my carpool rides consist of discussions about Tech Deck’s, Tony Hawk, and being cool all wrapped up with some Jesus in them. Family devotions usually occur in a random, but frequent manner as we go through this thing called life. I know that the Enemy of my soul would love nothing more than for me to go back to that place…that awful place of following rules just for the sake of following rules and making sure I sound spiritual to my spiritually mature friends and trying to memorize a verse in order to impress those around me and hope that I’ll be placed on a pedestal somewhere up high. Real high. Um, no thank you. I’ll just take Jesus.
