As I've been thinking about this over the past several days, I've made a decision. I need a reading break. Revolutionary, isn't it? I think it has something to do with some of the issues I've been grappling with, especially over the past couple months. I tend to be a curious, got-to-get-to-the-bottom-of-this type of person, and that has transferred into trying to pinpoint exactly what I believe on a couple heavy doctrines. Doctrines that can be a bit confusing. I've been reading and listening to messages and comparing differing opinions, and - I've decided to put some of these issues away for a little while and rest my brain!
Not that the books on my list have much to do with those issues; I've just come to the realization that in all my reading (even though they're good books) I've not been spending enough time in my Bible. And that's what I need most right now. I may do some other reading over the next month, but the plan is to devote January to focusing on God's Word, not other's opinions on His Word. (However helpful these can be.)
Hopefully it will be a refreshing, mind-clearing, heart-focusing time!
How about you? Anyone else experiencing book/thinking burn-out recently or in the past? What have you done to remedy this?
