We’re Obsessed!

Holiday Reese’s.
The Princess Bride.
My three little boys.
My turquoise cowboy boots.
Fainting goats . . .

If you could peek inside my brain, these are some of the things you’d find taking up lots of space. They’re what I like to think about most. Don’t even get me started talking about the things on that list! I will jabber on for weeks, and weeks, and weeks. (See what I mean?) I’m obsessed!

We all have obsessions, something we think about constantly, that we are over-the-top passionate about, that we can’t stop talking about. It’s what we post about on our Facebook wall and dream about when we stare off into space.

What if our passion in 2016 was to know God through His Word?

Typically, around this time of year, we all pick up a new obsession or two. We get obsessed with working out or getting organized or learning something new. For the first few months of the New Year, we become completely absorbed with becoming a newer, skinnier, better-balanced version of ourselves.

But what if this year we became obsessed with something different? What if instead of being knee-deep in thinking about ourselves, we became preoccupied with Someone else?

As we were planning ahead to 2016 on this blog, I kept thinking about this question:

What if the readers of LiesYoungWomenBelieve.com became obsessed with knowing their Bibles?

That question led to more questions like:

What might happen if we couldn’t stop talking about what we read in God’s Word?
How could it impact how we think if all we could think about was our Bibles?
What if our passion in 2016 was to know God through His Word?

We believe with our whole hearts that there is nothing that will impact your life more than faithfully studying God’s Word.

Those questions became an obsession of their own, so we’ve set aside the first month of this New Year with finding the answers.

All of our posts this month will be about getting into God’s Word and getting God’s Word into you. Really? A whole month about reading God’s Word? Yep! We’re obsessed. That’s because we believe with our whole hearts that there is nothing that will impact your life more than faithfully studying God’s Word.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Check out the blog daily for posts and giveaways designed to fuel your passion for God’s Word.
  • Help create social media buzz by sharing posts with the hashtag #ObsessedLYWB. (We’ll also be posting some shareable images in tomorrow’s post. Don’t miss it!)
  • Read your Bible! We don’t want you to become obsessed with this blog. We want this blog to encourage you to become obsessed with God’s Word.

We’d love to hear from you! Leave us a comment below dreaming about what could happen if you became obsessed with God’s Word. (You can tell us about your other obsessions, too!)
