I did it. I dragged my lazy self out of bed extra early in order to do the first of 88 daily Bible readings because (as you may have heard) I’m doing this…
Even though the main goal is just to READ the Bible, I decided that I should write down questions and/or observations as I go. That way, I can do a more in-depth study later.
Because let’s face it: reading the Bible sometimes brings up more questions than it answers. I’m pretty sure that’s evident by the seven (yes, SEVEN) pages of notes that I wrote today. I’m afraid this is really going to slow down my reading, but I’m just going to have to deal with it. (And probably buy another journal as this one will be full, soon!)
So, I’ve done today’s reading and then some! I probably should admit that I tend to skip over instructions and try to figure things out myself. Because I have the official Bible in 90 Days Bible, I naturally thought that it would be divided by daily readings. Not so. Apparently, you actually have to look at the daily reading schedule. My bad! So, as a sweet little bonus to myself, I’ve already read most of tomorrow’s reading, which is good given that I have a lot on my plate for tomorrow.
I will plan to check in on Mondays with updates on my progress and what I’ve been learning and/or thinking about.
One thing that kind of jumped off the pages for me today was the familiar story of Eve and the serpent. The serpent said to her, “Did God really say…” He made her question her beliefs. I don’t know about you, but I often hear that voice in my head–”Did God really say…”–and I’m prone to doubt. Some things never change.
So, for those who are doing the 90 Day Challenge, what do you think so far? It’s not too bad, right? Also, have you heard from your mentor? I haven’t and it’s making me all antsy.
