Do you ever get lost in God’s Word? I’m not talking about when you can’t find your way, but rather when you are exploring so intently that you look up and realize you’ve spent way more time than you realized in the Bible and it wasn’t even a chore! This week’s song, Live With Abandon by Newsboys, inspired me to take a journey that I share with you that I hope will lead you deep into God’s Word…maybe you’ll even get lost in it with me!
Don’t worry, I’ll be your guide. It will be fun! Let’s jump in together with abandon…not counting the costs!
On this week’s episode I discuss:
- King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived
- 1 Kings 3:3-14
- This week’s process that led me to God’s Word
- The importance of repetition in the Bible
- The phrase “like chasing the wind” found 8 times in Ecclesiastes
- “My Utmost for His Highest” by Oswald Chambers
- The daily devotion app
- Oswald Chambers’ article on Abandonment
- Mark 10:17-31

This Week’s Challenge
Search for the 8 references to “like chasing the wind” found in Ecclesiastes. Write down the verse references and then read the context around those verses to discover what “the teacher” uses to compare to that phrase. Then write down how you think that might apply to life today. Perhaps reference a situation in your own life when your life fit that description (maybe it even fits today).
If you want to know more about the presumed author of Ecclesiastes, you can read Solomon’s story beginning in 1 Kings.
To explore the catalyst verse for Oswald Chambers’ article on Abandonment, read and ponder Mark 10:17-31.
