It's 40 degrees Fahrenheit in my neck of the woods, and I am so cold.
I love the Lord, and I know that fall and winter have their indispensable purposes. I just wish it wasn't so cold.
Ugh, my Nigerian blood can't bear it.
I thought I'd write something fun and light today.
So let's talk about books!
And the crowd goes wild...😂
I love reading! As a child, I read any written material I could lay my hands on.
Yes, I sat at the dining table one evening and read the label on a packaged product so I could read something while I ate.
It really happened. 😊
I still read now. I have less time on my hands, of course, but I still try to make time to read.
So what do I read? Fantasy. Science Fiction. Romance. The list goes on. *
Here’s what you really want to know, though: do I still read Harlequin Romance novels?
I do not. It just kind of became not a thing. (That was Jesus at work, I realize now.)
I try not to read books that contain sex scenes, graphic language, questionable lessons and actions I generally won’t condone in real life.
Keyword in sentence above: try
Every story is different. And everyone is different.
As a cutie trying to be for Jesus, here’s what God’s got for you tonight: stop trying.
Just let Him lead you out of you and your pleasures and into Him and His desires.
So run your book choice by Jesus, and obey in faith.**
Just don’t run Fifty Shades of Grey by Jesus, okay? 🙄
*I actually finished Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine earlier today.
