Another New Project

Last night I went to Monday Night Live, the weekly meeting for Chi Alpha. For those of you who don’t know what Chi Alpha is, it is a young adult Christian Fellowship that has active groups at many colleges and universities in the United States. It was my first meeting, and a really good experience, but there were a couple things that the speaker said that particularly stood out to me. One of those things was that we should actively set apart time every day for God, both through prayer and reading the Bible.

Personally, that really challenged me to make some changes to my life and lifestyle. I have never really done anything quite like that. While I pray fairly regularly (meaning, whenever I’m not doing something else and think to, which, to be honest, has been a lot more often than it used to be), and consider myself fairly well-versed in the Bible (haha, punny), I have never really set apart time just for God before. Whether because of school, music rehearsals, or just having other things to do, I have never allowed time for something like that, but I’m deciding to change that.

As a new project, I am going to try to spend between ten and thirty minutes either reading the Bible or actively praying, not just cramming it in like an afterthought, if you know what I mean. That’s not a lot of time, but it’s more than I have been doing. Also, to hold myself accountable, I’m going to begin posting some thoughts from what I’ve read here on my blog (under the Daily Devotion category). I would start now, but I do have a rehearsal that starts in half an hour, so I will make my first real post tonight.
