"The careful study of the Word has a goal, which is not the careful study of the Word. The objective is to discover Jesus and allow him to change our trajectory." ~ Jen Hatmaker
In my pursuit of excellence on this God journey, the map of choice is God's Word. But do I ever simply treat it as an instruction manual to success, achievement, or attainment rather than a road map to Jesus? I pray not. I pray that God's Word will penetrate my being causing me to bow lower at his feet, cling tighter to the hem of his garment, sink lower in his lap, hold tighter to his arms, and lean closer as he whispers in my ear.
