i started reading the Bible again. at our yardsale this summer, a friend gave me the "one year bible". it's a bible that is formatted in days so that you read a little/lot of old testament and a little new testament with a chapter (or so) of psalms and a verse in proverbs each day. since i started in august (or whenever it was that i started) i didn't start in genesis, like i've always tried to do before. starting in genesis is so repetitive since i've tried that so many times. i always get tuckered out at approximately the same area... book... chapter... page... verse... ok, maybe the same word! (begat) anyway! so, i like this new approach and i like that i didn't start on jan. 1st. thanks friend!
well, starting a couple weeks ago, i began to falter in my readings. i would sleep in and forget, or just forget. i don't know why because i was really enjoying being in His Word and picking up on a lost habit that is so freakin' rewarding it's stupid not to do!!! i KNOW this. i KNOW that when i was/am reading His Word daily i feel better, i act better, i probably even smell better. but i'm struggling with it again.
because of this struggle, i'm also struggling in other areas. please pray for my dilligence in being in a daily habit of prayer and devotion.
also pray that i have the fortitude to make sure and do what is best for me and my family BEFORE i get on this stupid computer each day! i mean, really. seriously. is fortitude the right word here??? well, whatever.
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
