Rhythms of Faithfulness

I found this post from Anna last week provocative and timely. She writes of her time reading Scripture:

The dullness of my heart and the blindness of my eyes frustrate me. I want to be astounded and inspired, and instead I close the Book and cross “devotions” off my mental to-do list. I feel unchanged.

But maybe that isn’t all there is to it. Maybe something about the rhythms of faithfulness, the daily return to those same time-worn passages, is significant. Because those truths begin to form an undercurrent to my life.
