~ ASAP ~



Cell phone vs. Bible

Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?

What if we flipped through it several times a day?

What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?

What if we used it to receive messages from the text?

What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?

What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?

What if we used it when we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency?

This is something to make you go....hmm...where is my Bible?

Oh, & one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill.

Makes you stop & think 'where are my priorities? And no dropped calls!

  4. Oh Marydon, what a beautiful comparison. Thanks so much for sharing with me. I feel like I carry my Bible with me every where I go, as I have Jesus in my heart, and he is constantly tugging at my heartstrings reminding me of things to say and do. I am never without him. I know without a doubt he led me to you. You are the sunshine in my days. I look so forward to coming home to visit with you each morning. You are the first blog I hit each morning to see what you posted the night before. You are the cup of java that gets me going. I see you smile and it makes me smile. I thank you for that my friend. I mean that whole heartedly. You have become a very special person in my heart, and I will keep you for life. Thank you so very much. I truly love you Marydon, my friend. Country Hugs and Love Always, Sherry

  16. Perfect post. I love the comparison to the cell phone. What about Jesus has our caller ID, and always picks up. He's never "busy", and there are no "automated" calls, although we sometimes get a "call" when we're in the middle of something.
    Thanks for coming by and leaving a "comment". Always great to hear from you!

  19. Oh how wonderful. It's great to stop and think what if, when we compair different things to the bible. I have never really stoped to think what if I didn't have my cell phone until recently when I was unable to pay for my phone for a few months. I really only use it to talk to my cousin in Oklahoma, and I missed being able to do that so much. I do find that in quiet times you can really communicate better with the Lord. I think if we stop and take a break from life we will find all our prayers are answered.

    Great analagy.


    Cheers,

  20. What a thought provoking post. Thank you. I I know I will be mulling this over today.

  21. Oh, I like this very much!
    I'm ashamed to say that I treat both my cell phone and my Bible the same lately, I forget about them all the time. I put them aside and they sit on a shelf and I only think about them in emergencies.
    I really have to work on myself in the Bible department. The cell phone can sit on the shelf.
    Thanks so much for a lovely reminder.
    I do pray often, but God must get sick of my one-way conversation as I never let Him get a Word in. Time to dust off the Bible.
    Thanks!
    All the best,
    Eileen

  24. Dear Marydon,

    Thank you for sharing this very thought-provoking post. I truly felt convicted. Seeking out my cell phone now will have a reminder attached to it.... "is my Bible with me as well"? I know the Lord used this post to tug at many of our heart strings....

    Our Lord's grace and peace unto you,

  31. Hello Sweet Angel!
    Amy has an appointment with the eye Dr. this afternoon. Debbie will call when she knows something. She goes to Okla.City to see the surgeon on Monday. (The Dr. called them at 9pm) last night. This will be another big day as we find out about he surgery she needs. Amy had a really bad day yesterday. Lot's of pain. I don't know how she is this morning. I am always afraid to call as I know Debbie just goes until she drops and I don't want to wake anyone in the house. My morning starts at 3:45am so I am getting up sometimes just as she is going to bed. When I hear from her today I will blog you a message and then you will know what they say is going on with these colors she is seeing in her left eye. Take care sweetie. I am back to work. Just wanted to drop you a quick line. I am so glad you loved the post. This one was really fun. Country Hugs, I love you, Sherry
