The hardest part of a missionary career, Hudson Taylor found, is to maintain regular, prayerful Bible study. “Satan will always find you something to do,” he would say, “when you ought to be occupied about that, if it is only arranging a window blind.”

Just got rid of the manga and youtube videos! Almost done with the book of Isaiah! Almost a hundred chapters behind on the BRP, but how many times do we get the chance to read the Bible in our lifetime?

One day when he was over 70 years old, he paused as he crossed the sitting room in Lausanne, Bible in hand, and said to one of his children: “I have just finished reading the Bible through, today ,for the fortieth time in 40 years.” And he not only read it, he lived it. – excerpt from Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret. 

What a thing that would be to tell your kids? haha

But then, it is not impossible.

Read what God has to say. Not only for yourself, but for those you love.
