Cell phone vs Bible

I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several time a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?

This is something to make you go ... hmm, where is my Bible?
Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill.:):)!

My day yesterday- Woke up at 6 am to start writing a paper due at 8:50, went to class at 8:50 until 3:40(!!) with no break or no lunch. Torture. Came home and tried to take a power nap before strength class and Bible study but the UPS man came exploding into my apartment(while ringing the doorbell) with my new Bible from my mom!! It's awesome. I went to a Bible study last night that my friend goes to and I loved it so much. Everyone was so welcoming and it was just amazing. It's so important that I surround myself with christian friends so I can grow in my faith. At the end we all prayed for each other and my request was that I could communicate better with non-believers in order to show God's love and how absolutely amazing he is. I just pray that the lord will give me me words, I want him to speak through me. I used to be really timid about talking about my faith but now I just feel so.. different. I don't know how to explain it but it's wonderful :) :).
Running has been going good lately, I start my training plan at the end of this month. Until then i'm just going to run whatever I feel like doing. Amy and I ran 5 miles today at an easy pace and we both made some good decisions. For as long as we can remember we haven't been running for ourselves. We run for our coach, our teammates, a medal.. This marathon we are both completely dedicating to God. Going on 15-22 mile runs on Sundays leaves not of time open to just think and talk with each other. It's going to be our own personal time with God. I'm searching for a verse that means a lot to me so on race day I can write it on my arm and have it be a constant reminder to me of why I'm running 26.2 miles.
Some Random things
- If you haven't tried the new International coffee creamers you must! I got hazelnut Biscotti and it's so good that I look forward to waking up early just for that! Ha!
- I'm trying to guilt trip my Mom into visiting me this weekend because I really really really want to see her. :) --Pretty please mom?!?! ;)
- Chris Tomlin's voice is amazing.
- My Spanish teacher is extremely boring. God bless him.
- I drank an insane amount of coffee this morning which lead to me getting dizzy/nausea and taking a two hour nap which consisted of crazy, crazy dreams. Wahoo. Now i've got a one cup limit.
Goodnight all!

Saw your blog link on Caitlin's (runlikekenyan) blog. Definitely makes you think about what we consider a priority!

Though there are quite a few Bible apps for the iPhone these days haha.
