The Real Reason Why You’re Not Reading Your Bible

If you’ve struggled with reading your Bible and just can’t get into a habit of study, it could mean something more serious than just not having enough time. Sure, a hectic schedule and a long to-do list are common excuses, but the real reason is, you’ve lost fellowship with the Lord.

Family issues, financial burdens, work challenges, and illness are just a few on that long list. Oh, and don’t forget that hurt that just won’t go away causing you to cry yourself to sleep. Maybe you are afraid to cry out to Him. It’s been such a long time. He seems very far away and uninterested in your messy life.

You blame Him for all your problems instead of admitting you are in sin.

I created We NEED the Lord, a free online Bible study, for you because I want to help you get back to reading His Word. Right now, you need the Lord’s Promises to help you get through something really tough.

I am not a Bible scholar. I read the Bible as the Lord’s love letter to me. I seek Him in His Word and He reveals Himself to me, on every page, in every Promise. There is nothing more precious and powerful than to be in the presence of the Lord.

Healing, faith, wisdom…you can find all you need in Him as you go through the joys and sorrows of this life. His Promises will bring restoration and joy to your heart.

The Lord wants a relationship with you!

We NEED the Lord is for you. There’s no fluff in this free Bible study, only the Lord’s Promises and real examples of how He helps and comforts His children. Most of us pray to change our circumstances. Of course, He knows the difficulties we face and can calm those raging storms. But, consider this, if you are His child, sometimes there are lessons to be learned during these storms. These are the times God uses to shape our character.

The Lord’s Promises shine a light in a dark world.

Not only is there hope in the Word, but the Word is powerful:

Is not My word like fire? says the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

Here’s what you’ll find in We NEED the Lord:

31 verses of Scripture with comforting photo images. Download, print, and share these verses as you learn about the Lord as our Creator, as our Savior, and as our Sustainer. No matter what, our God is faithful and He will walk lovingly beside us as we go through difficult times.

A prescription written by the Lord. When confusion sets in, we begin to wonder about the Lord’s guidance in our lives. Learn how to cure confusion with this 3 Step Plan.

Whats tough love? Dive into the Book of Zephaniah to learn how God is glorified in judging as well as He is glorified in saving.

Our God is a God of the second chance. Discover how Jonah and Job’s relationship with the Lord is tested in different ways in two eBooks:

Jonah: Its Not About a Fish, Its About Second Chances

Job: The Truth is, God is Right, No Matter What

This valuable Bible resource will help you on your way to establishing a daily habit of Bible reading. There is hope and comfort for His children.

Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD; and they shall be My People, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.”  Jeremiah 24:7

There is hope for you. Get back to reading His love letter and have confidence in His Word.

I love the Bible and can’t wait to share what I’ve learned with you. I am not an expert, that’s for sure, but I know whatever I need I will find in the Lord’s Trusted Word. If you are ready to open your Bible and seek the Lord, I know the depth of His love for you will be revealed.


Rosemarie Pagano

Studying the Bible and keeping a prayer journal has been a habit I’ve developed over the years. I’ve been blessed with wonderful, mature Christian women who opened their homes, and the Word, to teach and encourage me.I am a Bible reader and not a Bible scholar. I open the Lord’s love letter and let the Best Teacher guide me.Isaiah 28:26 “For He instructs him in right judgment, His God teaches him.Isaiah 28:29 “This also from the LORD of hosts, Who is wonderful in counsel and excellent in guidance.”I love the Bible and want to share what I’ve learned with you. I am not an expert, that’s for sure, but I know whatever I need I will find in the Lord’s Trusted Word. May the Lord bless you as you study His Word.
