If you've followed my blog for awhile then you would know that I have taken a challenge last Fall to read the entire Bible in 90 Days. Up until that point in my life, I've never read the Bible through it's entirety. I completed that challenge with 2 days to spare reading it in 88 days..
Since then I've had a tug on my heart to read it again. Cover to cover. I found that Mom's Tool Box website is hosting another Bible in 90 Days challenge. The great news is she has two options this time around. Follow her original plan by reading the Bible in 90 Days Bible or read it chronologically. This is the way I want to read the Bible. To see the stories unfold to me in the order of time. I think what made it hard to understand the last time I read it cover to cover is it kept flipping around back and forth in time and it was hard to follow.
This time I'm reading it chronologically and what a difference so far. I've completed my first week and started today on Day 8. I'm loving this so much. God has been faithful in giving me the time I need each day to read His word. I feel that their isn't anything more important than reading, absorbing and applying God's Word to my life.
I have completed reading Genesis, some of 1st Chronicles and all of Job. Today I've started reading Exodus. I'm reading this time around with more of an open heart and mind to what God wants me to see through this time in His Word. The last time I read it cover to cover it was just mainly to get an overall picture of who God is, what God has to say and who Jesus is.. Now, I want more. I want to really see His Word. I want to apply it to my life somehow. With God's help, I really feel I can do this.
Not sure how often I'll post about my Bible challenge.. I wanted to let you all know that I've chosen to read the good book again cover to cover and will be done by Thanksgiving. I am using the One Year Chronological Bible NLT Version and Mom's Tool Box has a two week at a time schedule to follow along with the Bible.. Would love to hear if you are joining in on this or have joined in, in the past..
