Who remembers rock pooling as a kid during the summer holidays? I remember our family holidays to the caravan park on the hillside overlooking St. Andrews beach, it was a haven of delights. My nephews, neice and myself disappeared all day down the beach like explorers in a foreign land. The Scots language for rock pooling is “guddling.” It’s the same term used to refer to fishing for trout with your hands from a river bank.
My heart is excited as I read God’s Word. It is like going guddling on the beach at lowtide, searching the shallows and the deeper pools, turning over rocks to see what lies beneath. It is a fishing adventure for my soul. I must confess I squeal with delight at my Bible discoveries like I did when guddling on St.Andrews beach all those years ago.
Dear reader, get a mug of coffee and open your Bible today. Grab your highlighters and notebook and go guddling in His Word – it is fun!
