Consider Your Ways: Question 27
What's the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your commute this year?

I have to leave the house over 2 hours before starting work to make it on time. I work in a different city to where I live, but have not been keen to move there. Partly that's because my contract there is only for a year and thereafter I don't where in the country I will be. The main reason is though that I love my church because of the preaching and my church family there. So it looks like the lengthy commute will continue...!

Sometimes I drive up, which is now getting a little more stressful with the icier mornings and the scary drivers who come right up behind me before overtaking. It does however give me a good opportunity to listen to the news on the radio, although I have worryingly become a big fan of the Archers, BBC Radio 4's gentle agricultural drama aimed at middle class middle-aged and elderly people! I have decided to improve my journey though by listening to the Bible on CD. Friends have recommended it to me and then I found a good article about listening to an Audio Bible from Occupied with the Word. I'll let you know how I get on.

Other days, I take the train. This means getting up earlier, which, with the dark mornings, currently feels like getting up in the middle of night! I like the chance to get a cup of tea on the train (very important for waking up purposes!) and the time to read and pray undisturbed - aside from the fact that if you have a Bible open on your lap, no-one else will sit next to you!

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17
