I've noticed recently that I'm lacking something pretty big in my (feeble) spiritual life; the ability to contemplate on the words of the Bible! I find that when I read I tend to take things at face value and I tend not to be able to personally dig deeper into the meanings of the words. I've been given advice on how to deal with this before, such as taking only a few verses at a time and spending more time on them...but I don't seem to be able to hear God's voice. Maybe I'm being too impatient? I don't know, but I'd really like to hear any suggestions from anyone!
Keep me in your prayers,
