I'm obsessed with Podcasts.

Something I've been trying to focus on lately is trying to fill my time with things that are profitable to me spiritually during times that I normally don't.

I don't know if that made sense. Times such as getting ready in the morning or cleaning...but mostly when I'm in the car. I don't have a really long commute, but it is 25 minutes each way which adds up. 

I've never enjoyed listening to anyone talk until I started having a daily commute. So then I started listening to the radio....and most of it is trash. If not trash, then just meaningless chatter. And I don't want to listen to depressing news or political banter.

I started listening to my Bible reading in the morning since I had some catching up to do, but that just wasn't working. I like to actually READ the Bible - reread verses, make highlights, mull over it, etc.

So I then turned to Podcasts. So far it's been all David Platt for me. And it's been OH SO GOOD. I'm borderline obsessed.

If I'm even in the car for 5 minutes I'll turn one on. And then I don't want to stop. It's like I've all the sudden become some sermon junkie. But it seriously helps my mind and heart so much! I find myself thinking about it all throughout the day.

Being a Christ follower is such a daily commitment. If I go a few days without reading His Word or talking to Him, it makes SUCH a negative difference in me. 

Kinda sounds like marriage, huh? But I'll save that for another day... :)

  7. I am a sermond junkie too. ;) My favorite is William Macdonald. If you want to try out someone different, I highly recommend him! You might want to start out with these "True Discipleship" broadcasts: http://www.voicesforchrist.org/welcome/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=william+macdonald+true+discipleship
