In the last 6 weeks, I have been sharing my prayer and my own experience with the gospel as well as listening to the experience of others in the audio reflections called “Daily Shots”. I heard about the struggles, the funny movements and most importantly, how the gospel and the words of Jesus through our life experience have impacted others in their lives.
I found it incredible how relevant and relatable our day-to-day lives can be with the words in the bible and how amazing the Word of God is for my own life.
The experience of “Daily Shots” preachers as well as those who listened, I believe has really expressed the reality that when we take time to listen and pray with the Word of God, we can learn so much for our own personal thought and growth. By so doing, we allow God to be real in our daily lives and make us grow closer to him.
Deeply rooted in who we are and how we live, we find that it is how we can hear and speak to God. God can really speak to us through our daily realities. Nothing in our lives is too far from the reach of God’s word.
The amazing thing is that this experience of “Daily Shots” in our lives has even conquered our seemingly biggest enemy – time! The time we never have, the time that we are always running after. Even “Daily Shots” preachers expressed this gratitude and grace to realize and see that when we do make time for God and His word, no matter how little, there’s a lot more we can gain from it. Even in the midst the busyness of life, that time as little as it is, when spent with the Word of God, is worth more to us in our lives than we can ever imagine. It can even be the answer to what we are always chasing after.
All in all, this experience with “Daily Shots” has been exactly that - a daily shot, a shot of life and reflection that I needed to make a difference in my current realities. The impact of listening to God through the experience of the Word and these “Daily Shots” have changed the way I relate to reading the bible. These have really proven to be one of the most effective ‘shots’ I’ve ever received. ‘Shots’ of real wisdom and grace for my life that in all honesty, I have not found anywhere else.
I really praise and thank God for giving us this experience of this daily dose of the Word of God in my life.
