I just wanted to ask you about your study habits. Do you read the scriptures every day? Do you read them in a set order, or skip around? I haven't really read the scriptures since getting home from my mission 3.5 years ago. Since I'm being honest, I know I don't pray the same way either.
I found a passion for the scriptures in the MTC when I really read the BoM for the first time. That spurred my reading the entire Bible, along with the bible dictionary, and the rest of the triple combo, then on to the missionary library - but I only read Jesus the Christ.
Then, I don't know what happened. It's like I was full from eating too much, metaphorically speaking. Don't get me wrong, it's not as though I've got it all figured out. I just felt that I was done reading.
I'm the kind of guy you hate, that never has to study for tests. I just apsorb information that way. I know I can't do the same thing with this though. That is, I remember a lot about the scriptures, but the problem lies in that I've lost the spirit. I feel that I'm, in my own little way, becoming one of the "Wo unto the learned" crowd.
My wonderful wife will be my savior until I can get off my ass and read for the love of feeling the spirit again. She makes sure we read every night. Maybe I just need to live the mission lifestyle to make sure I read: no more TV/internet gaming just to kill time, start work on improving my surroundings, cleaning house, etc...
