Stay hungry for the Word of God.  A great way to help better understand why this is important is a simple illustration of being sick.  Usually when sickness is in your body, the first symptoms are generally subtle.  But the moment you lose your appetite, you know the sickness is trying to shut down your immune system entirely.  Not eating or getting the right amount of fluids can cause major harm and your body will not get the proper nutrients it needs. 


Furthermore, if we start to lose our appetite for the Word of God, the same happens spiritually as it would naturally.  Our spirit isn't getting the proper nourishment therefore causing illness.  Generally the symptoms are an unsettled spirit, irritation, "being sick and tired of being SICK and tired", or physical illness caused by spiritual disobedience just to name a few.  Sometimes I wonder why I feel so irritable or dissatisfied even when things in my life are running smoothly.  The answer simply put is that I have not being feeding my spirit enough of the nutrients it needs. 

  • But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’" -Matthew 4:4 ESV
  • Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” -John 4:13-14 ESV
  • Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. -Matthew 5:6 ESV

Stay Hungry for the Word of God!  It keeps us healthy spiritually as well as naturally.  So... what are you feeding your spirit?  Share in the comments below.

WordNerd’s Return

WordNerd is back but it’s quite different than before.  When I originally set out to start the WordNerd blog, it had a two fold meaning.  I’m a bookworm and I like the art of language so the wording of things mean a lot to me.  Kinda nerdy, right?  On the other side of it, the Word of God is a major component in my life and I especially find enjoyment in researching the meaning of the Hebrew/Greek words from which the Bible was originally translated.  Also, Jesus Himself is the Word and I want to know everything there is about Him and to be as close to Him as possible.  Therefore, I research and study about Him as much as possible.  I guess that makes me a nerd.  Hence how WordNerd came about.  Lol. 


Now with that being said, obviously that was a complete fail when I first began blogging.  I wrote about everything but my faith in God which wasn’t a bad thing but it wasn’t the right thing because that’s not what He told me to do.  God told me to write about what I enjoy but to include Him also.  So I decided to obey and writers block has dissipated and my mind is flowing with ideas continually and clearly.  The Bible does say, “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” -Proverbs 3:6 NKJV.  Interesting how obedience brought about such clarity and direction. 

This may not be popular but it’s right.  And trust me, I’d much rather be right with Jesus than to be popular... after all, obedience is better than sacrifice.  I know He got me!  So welcome to the “new” WordNerd... what it was supposed to be in the first place: Faith, Fitness, and Natural Care.  They all tie in to and give Glory to God!  

What is God waiting for your total obedience in?  If you’d like, share in the comments below!
