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 14, Deuteronomy 8-23

I sincerely apologize to everyone who is coming by the blog to see my progress and read how I felt about the day's chapters. I apologize that that hasn't happened yet. This is a true account of everyday of my three month journey of reading the entire Bible.  This is the story of my struggle with myself and my desire to complete a promise.  I know you know what it is like to make a commitment and then it seems like everything is getting in your way. Everything is coming up to make you fall short. In my first post I wrote that I was glad that I was finding the time when it seems like there never is any time.  For the past two days I haven't been finding the time. Yesterday's reason was selfishness and today's was too.  I didn't want to admit that today  I was because I just got home at 10:30PM from a dinner meeting.  The thing is the meeting wasn't mandatory. It was good to show face but I mainly wanted the food. I could've came home at my regular time and read the Bible and caught up. Instead, it is 11:17PM and I am about to read as much as I can before I fall asleep.  Finishing the Bible is a task I will complete. This work will be done for my soul's sake.

Tomorrow's Reading is Deuteronomy 24-34

Gary is willing to read with me ( I should say listen to me) tomorrow.  I plan to read until my tongue swells. With that established, I am not going to read tonight because I don't want to have to read it aloud again tomorrow.  Yes, I know I should want to read it now and then again, but I don't. Not right now and there isn't anything wrong with it.  When this 3 months is over I will know much more about the glory of the Lord.

  1. My dear Sarah, no need to apologize. Remember God knows your heart. We can only see what is on the outside. Continue your journey,b/c you are doing a great job. Most of us are behind in your journey, but we still continue to read. May not be everyday but we are still reading. I just want to encourage you to continue your path and not be so hard on yourself....God loves you and so do I.
