It’s about time I updated again on reading the Bible in 90 days. In my last update, I mentioned that I was a little bit ahead. I am glad that I did that or I would definitely be behind this week. Life has a way of throwing curve balls at you and I have had a lot of days this week that didn’t go as planned. While I was able to fit some reading in, it wasn’t a whole daily portion according to the schedule.
I have heard people say that reading the Bible in this way reads like a novel. I understand why they would say that. I am seeing the connection to so many things in the Bible that I haven’t even come to in my reading yet. For example, as I read about King Uzziah in 2 Chronicles, the phrase, “In the year that King Uzziah died….” from Isaiah 6 came to my mind. It gave me a whole new perspective on that chapter. I know that I will never read it the same again.
Reading through Esther as a whole was so exciting, even though I already knew the outcome. This is so easy to do since it is only 10 chapters. And today I start with the book of Job. I have been studying and teaching through this, but I am looking forward to reading it straight through. I know it will help me as I prepare for my next lesson.
I am still a few days ahead which is an encouragement. I know someone who is trying to catch up and I am thankful that is not me. I think I would give up. Maybe not…at this point, by the grace of God, I have read too far to quit. If you would like to join me, it is not too late. A lady in our church started 2 weeks ago. Grab a schedule here, and start counting your 90 days from today. Be sure to leave a comment below so I can pray for you and we can encourage one another.
