This year I have decided that I am in need of a change in my study habits. I Love to read the scriptures but it is not enough for me anymore. I was in a Sunday school lesson the other day that spoke of feasting upon the gospel as opposed to just going to dinner. It made me realize that I have been way to relaxed in my scripture study. I need to go into my scripture study with a mind ready to find what the Lord wants to tell me. If I'm not ready I will never find it.
Now I also just have to say that I don't mean to say any of this to say that I am so good at learning, everyone be like me. I have so far to go. I only share because it took me so long to figure out that I was the only thing standing in the way of my learning and spiritual growth. When I wondered why i didn't receive the spiritual messages my friends and family did and was upset because of it. That was my fault, I wasn't letting myself learn, I was not being teachable. So I share in hopes that someday someone may read this, that my children may read this and learn it a little sooner then I did so that they may have more time to learn all that they can. I love to learn. I encourage you to step out of your own way and take advantage of all the learning that is before you, waiting for you!
