I am NOT a Bible Scholar!

I just want to share my experiences in reading the Bible over a 90 (actually 92) day timeframe. Most of my posts will be about how I felt about the reading or how I feel my daily life is changing. It might be interesting to you or it might not.

Day 13, Numbers 33 - Deuteronomy 7

Well, day 13 has come and gone. If I am going to speak honestly about the day, it didn't go well as far as reading was concerned.  It is funny how one's body will immediately begin to feel sleepy when trying to read the Bible at night.  Unfortunately, for me, I didn't even get to experience that last night. Why, you ask?  I didn't attempt to read. Yes, I thought about it but I never even stepped foot in the room where my Bible is. ( I wrote is instead of was because it is still in the same place right now)  Epic fail!

This was the situation. My husband came into the living room where I was watching a DVR recorded episode of Maury Povich (Which means I could've watch it at any time) and says, " I thought we were going to read the Bible and you are watching television".  Did I let this statement convict me? Absolutely NOT!!  I proceeded to tell him how interesting the episode was and encouraged him to watch the segment that just finished. ( I love DVR) He watched with me and agreed that it was interesting. When the first commercial came on he says, " Sarah, are we going to read the Bible or not. I came in here to read the Bible with you and if you are just going to watch T.V. I am leaving because I have other things I could be doing". WHAM! POW! SLAP! BOOM!

After that I felt a little guilty. He left the room and when he returned we were suppose to read the Bible. Did I get up to retrieve the Book? No. Did I decide it was nap time? YES. When I opened my eyes again it was morning. I will add that my couch sleeps pretty nicely.  Now we are going to play catch up again.  Such is life, all we can do is try to do better next time. Hopefully, I will do just that. God knows my heart.

Today's reading is Deuteronomy 8-23

  1. Sarah you have never been a follow through person unless it deals with money....HOWEVER, you have not given up, you are just procrastinating. (if that is spelled correctly) Anywho, you will again pick up your bible and continue with your reading. Right now there is so many things that are convicting you with REALITY that you are almost afraid to continue reading. God is not convicting you but showing you the path that you were once on. I don't think ( no one pays me to think anyway) that you are on the same path that you were on before you got married. You have convinced a multitude of people to read there bible. So what if you don't finish when you thought you might, most of us won't. We will all finish at different times, but we will FINISH. I thank you for encouraging me to read. So as you find other things to do, try dwelling on what you have read to get a better understanding of what you read. Don't be so hard on yourself. We have all lived and still live a sinful life....the flesh dies daily not over night.
