This past week, I had the opportunity to take a break from Miracle Camp life and talk to students at Mattawan Middle School about reading. Reading is something that I have become passionate about over the last few years thanks to IWU… I never realized what I was missing!
At the end of my presentation, I was taking questions from the students- as any good presenter would do. One student asked “How do you get into a book that just does not seem all that interesting to you- even if all of your friends say it is great?”
My answer surprised me.
I told him to stick with it. I told him that it sometimes takes time to get into a book. I told him to keep trying until he gets it.
I’m not trying to be over spiritual, but I realized that my answer could also relate to Christianity.
How many times have you wanted to get into the Bible- get into worship- get into spirituality- but felt that you just couldn’t?
I know I have been there.
The answer is simple.
Stick with it. It takes time. Keep trying.
