There are days you can feel the wearying of it: Our minds process 105, 000 words a day— the equivalent of 2 complete books. Every single waking day — we process the equivalent of 2 complete books  — about 550 pages of words —but how many pages of His Word do we read, digest, meditate on, sit with, incarnate?

When I read this quote it certainly reminded me of our challenge this summer to read larger portions of Scripture than maybe we are used to.  With the advent of computers we are taking in more information than any generation before us. How much of it is really helpful?  How much of it is improving your life?  Someone did a study on the impact of Facebook.  One group looked at Facebook every day and the other group didn't look at it at all.  They evaluated both groups at the end of the trial period and discovered that those who were not viewing Facebook on a daily basis were actually happier and more content.

We need to be reminded that everything we take in is either positive or negative.  Very little is neutral.  I can guarantee you that if you absorb God's Word every day it will have a  positive impact on your life.  

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5,6
