I am ashamed of what I have done, for it has been many days since my last post. My habit of memorizing the Bible (or reading it) has been slipping, and I have felt a corresponding feeling that there is something missing in my life.
But thanks be to God that I have a wife who he uses for His grand devices. This morning, she said that she would like for the two of us to take our quiet times at the same times each day, in the evening. What a godsend this was! Not only am I now more able to make a designated time when I can study God's Word, but we will be able to spend more time together in the process. I couldn't be happier.
Here are today's verses, pickng up where I left off:
Now the springs of the great deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible. After forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth.
