Pick Up the Word!

Publisher’s Note


Looking for a Great Read this Summer?

Pick Up the Word!

Interviewing Kathie Lee Gifford for our cover story this month, I could not help but get caught up in her excitement of being a student of God’s Word. “The Bible is our treasure map,” she said and I knew exactly what she meant. The more time we spend reading God’s Word, memorizing His Word and applying it to our lives, the deeper our relationship with Him becomes. What greater treasure is there?! She described it as God’s Word settling deep in her soul.

I can remember years ago when I decided to commit time each day in God’s Word and in prayer with Him. I found it hard to make the time and then to stay focused. For me, starting early and journaling to God about the Words I read, developed into a wonderful conversation I look forward to every morning. Even in the most difficult of deserts, the Word gives me the hope and direction I need.

As it says in Psalm 107:20, “He (God) sent out His Word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.” I am so thankful for God’s Word and the power in His Word to heal me! and heal you!

Pick up the best read there ever was or will be- God’s Word! And share it with a friend!
