     I started my website in 2006 when I started seminary. Reading the Bible every day helped me hang on to my faith, because a seminary education in a liberal university will rock your faith. My MDiv came with a thousand questions I did not have when I entered seminary. Staying in the Bible restored my peace.

     Lean-into-God was created to be a resource for those who might need a little help in their goal to make time and space for God. Despite our best efforts, most of us are strapped with responsibilities and harassed by distractions that resist our better judgment. Even now, I remember well the tyranny of the urgent, how it dogged me day and night.

     Making time for God is a decision. You decide yes or you decide no. Contrary to what you may think, it is NOT complicated. You will do what you want to do. Our Pastor says, "It's a get too, not a got too." Good news, a little time in the beginning can lead to much more time later.

     Therefore, some of these daily readings (Psalms, Proverbs and some Devotionals) take only a minute or two to read, but the daily routine is more important than the quantity of time you spend. Routine (faithfulness first), then leave the rest to the Lord. Just think, you can go through the entire Bible in one year by spending 15 minutes or less every day; reading the Bible for yourself or following along as someone else reads it.

     Make the most of those every day   waiting  situations. There are also whole books on this web site that have been broken down into small bites. Again, faithfulness, even in the little will be rewarded.

     I am told the older I get the more set I will be in my ways, but if you have been with me on this website the past thirteen years you've noticed many changes, hopefully for the better. From J. Vernon McGee to Robert Murray M'Cheyne, from NRSV to ESV it seems I am always spending so much time changing my site. God's grace led Lily and I to a church that believes and loves the Bible ... all of it, word for word. So we are finally home. On 8/16/2018 I decided to follow the order my Pastor, Brett Meador, uses. I will be around the horn 8/16/2019.

     The calendar below will take you to that specific day’s reading and video resources. More reading options are below the calendar.

     I am NOT a 501 and besides, the Lord is my portion.

     Most everything on this site comes from somewhere else. I try to link everything to its source. Books mentioned on this site are linked to Amazon. Hopefully this site will give the reader a taste of the tremendous amount of good material available to help us grow closer to the Lord..
