Feeling run down...anemia

Yesterday I was feeling so tired and exhausted.  I spent after dinner just sitting in the bed and not getting ready for today.  It finally dawned on me.  I hadn't taken my new iron supplement in several days and I was feeling the effects of not having the iron in my body.  When you're anemic you need to keep a steady stream of iron coming in so you don't feel like you're totally exhausted and wiped out.

As believers, it's the same with quiet time and bible reading.  If we don't spend time reading our bible and looking to God for inspiration, then we end up totally exhausted and overwhelmed by life.  If you can't read for 30 minutes straight...take 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there.  I print out verses and hang them around the house so when I'm in those areas I can read while I'm standing.  Presently I have Prov 27 next to the stove.  We're so fortunate to the have Word of God available in every format possible.  Let's not ever say we didn't have time to read it

2 Timothy 2:15  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
