Bible Reading Challenge Check-In

bible sample wide Hey there! Monday is here once again; can you believe it?

Well, after spending some time all caught up on the daily Bible reading, I fell behind this week. My sweet 5 year old, Tarah, fell and broke her arm on Thursday night and since then, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. It was a rough experience, but she is hopefully on the mend. School begins this week; however, so I’m hopeful that the schedule will bring more routine back into our lives.

And how is your daily Bible reading going? Let’s continue to encourage one another to read each day.On the two days I missed it this week, I could tell such a difference in my overall attitude and spirit. I struggled to rely on the Lord and have continued to feel the effects of those days.

Alright, Friends. Enough about me. I want to hear about your experiences. Do you have a moment to check in and let us know how it’s going?

Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Rachel

    Hi Rachel
    I’m doing daily time in my bible and devo book
    Usually spend time in morning – sets the tone for my day – and helps with my attitude and calms my soul and then usually of a night a few verses to know my bible to prepare for a restful night. I know what you mean Rachel and tough week for both you and Mary – I’m sorry for your loss and Virtual hugs to you both
    I was brought up to read copious amounts of scripture in one sitting but I’ve found breaking it down into smaller portions really allows me to ponder and absorb what I’m reading and gain more from it
    Thank you for your beautiful site
    Blessings

  2. I dont have a certain daily reading plan, but i pray for God to send me to a certain place in the scriptures that I feel He may need me to study and to just enjoy His time…Right now Im studying the journey of Paul through the New Testament and have followed his travels through the Word, and using one of the maps in the back of my bible that shows his journeys. Through Paul, I have learned how a person can not want to see the truth or live for God, but once His divine revelation is given, they can have a great desire that spans anything! I want that for myself and for my family…I found your website through chance…and it has inspired me. Sometimes we, as women, tend to think we are the only ones going through certain problems and hurting. I am no exception. I look forward to your site and will continue to go through it always searching for inspiration to help me get through. God Bless you and your entire family

    Rachel and Mary, it sounds like last week was quite a challenge for both of you. It was my first week back at work after being on a missionary support trip to Zambia for 2 1/2 weeks. Trying to adjust my “new” self (I am never quite the same person after the trip) back into my “old” world is always a bit of a challenge. I didn’t have time for my daily reading there but picked up where I stopped upon my return; I am just going to keep at it and not skip ahead to be on track. The reading and spending time with God is more important than the schedule. Blessings for the week!

  4. Oh, wow, so sorry Mary…and Rachel, I’m also sorry to hear about your little one’s broken arm…praying for you both…not reading the Bible through anymore, but continuing my quiet time w/The Lord

    Mary T, so sorry for your loss! Prayers for you!
    Still on track with the reading.

  6. One last thought…it was no coincidence that on saturday, the day of the funeral Mass, I read the passage from Matthew where Jesus tells the disciples to let the children come to Him and that was also the Gospel chosen by Anna’s parents…God speaks to us through His Word…how blessed are we who seek Him in it…His Peace, Hope and Love in all His Glory! Praise God!

  7. Hi Rachel! I have not been following the plan but I have. Been reading my Bible daily…I have been following the Catholic Mass readings for each day from both the Old and New Testaments and the Book of Psalms (since the challenge started). Instead of just reading the passage from the Mass, I read the entire passage from my NIV and NKJV Bibles as well. I have found this to be a beautiful way to read the related Scripture from both the OT and the NT, as well as the Psalms. This past week it has been even more of a blessing as God called another of my students home in the wee hours of last Monday morning. Anna is with Jesus now and I know she is free from the restrictions of her earthly body, running free….she left us as she slept and I believe God blessed her greatly and her family as well…she would be 15 on September 3rd. Her life was filled with love and she was always smiling a smile that would light up the room. I am blessed to have known and loved her! Asking for prayers for comfort and peace for Anna’s loved ones left here as we celebrate her life and hold her in our hearts…God bless!
    ps. The Wojo family and Taylor and all children are in my daily prayers…always with love!
