The Banned-Book You Should Read and the GraceLaced Mondays Link Up

GLMondays2.jpg

Welcome to GraceLaced Mondays, a link up dedicated to sharing any and all blog posts by like-minded lovers of grace--God's grace! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it...and I invite you to share your story, great or small, of how everyday moments are full of Grace.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

Did you know that the Bible is restricted or banned in over fifty countries around the world? We believe it to be the bread of Life, but sometimes we take our freedom for granted and treat our meals as an afterthought. Jenni Mullinix, of Live Called, shared a convicting post last week that encourages us to get into this banned-book:

  • How many mornings do we choose an extra hour of sleep instead of getting up for a quiet time?
  • How many minutes do we waste checking Facebook or Twitter instead of memorizing Scripture?
  • How many evenings do we watch television instead of praying for the persecuted church and other concerns?
  • How many days will go by before we give God’s Word the priority it deserves?

Thank you so much for linking up, Jenni, and for the encouragement to prioritize our feasting in the Word!
