An alternate title for this post might be “PLEASE PRAY FOR ME!” I am attempting to do going to do, by God’s grace, something I’ve never done before: read the Bible in its entirety. And I’m going to do it in 90 days.
I first heard of this challenge/plan on Candace’s blog, and I rejoiced with her when she finished the challenge herself earlier this year. I decided to join the challenge which begins today because I am in a serious spiritual slump. I lack discipline in my life when it comes to spiritual issues (particularly having a devotional life), and I hope that this forced discipline will shape me up–at least that’s my prayer.
With an infant in the house, sleep is at a premium, so I know better than to plan to do my reading early in the morning. I am still in the “sleep when he sleeps” mode, especially while the girls are sleeping, too. Instead, I plan to take advantage of the girls’ afternoon quiet hour. The DLM is usually awake at this time, but I hope to be able to read and hold him, too. 🙂
If my blogging slows down, you’ll know why. I am currently behind by two book reviews and I’ve almost finished another book, and I do hope to catch up and keep up with my reviews. However, with as much Bible reading as I’ll be doing, my reading of other materials will also slow down. It will be so worth it to me, though, when I reach the end of this challenge and have the whole Bible “under my belt.” I hope I will be able to post a brief check-in post on Mondays to hold myself accountable, and also because this is the check-in day at Mom’s Toolbox, the bloggy home for this challenge.
That’s what I’m up to. If you’re visiting my blog from Mom’s Toolbox/The Bible in 90 Days challenge, welcome! You can find out more about me here. 🙂
