Timely

Have you ever been really down?  I mean down at the level of despair.  Not totally fossilized but close.  Motivated to do nothing much more that practice being a lump.  I was pretty much there this morning.  I have a habit of reading the Bible each day.  I have mentioned before that I have been using the morning and evening readings from the Book of Common Prayer for the past several years.  This morning the first verse the BCP directed me to was Psalm 75:1.  As I read the passage I literally laughed out loud.
I have found that the Bible pierces darkness in my life in a timely manner...  That assumes I am in it...
Why?

I have lost count of the number of times I have come to this time in my day struggling with some burden or other and the passage I read lifted that burden or shed light in very dark places.  It happened again this morning.  The timeliness of the way God’s Word engages in my pain is stunning.  Have you experienced that?  In order to, you pretty much have to be in it regularly, even when you do not feel like it.
