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 26, 1 Kings 17 - 2 Kings 4

Do I know how to multi-task my heart? I know this might sound weird but this is a reality for me.  When I dedicate myself to one thing, I sometimes neglect the other important things in my life.
This is my weekday schedule
5:30am -  wake up
6:15am - leave for work
7:45am - 4:30pm - work
6:15pm - arrive home from work
6:15pm - 10pm- Try to settle in and spend time with the family which includes:

                          cook dinner 1- 2 hours ( I have no clue how Rachel Ray does it in 30 minutes)
                          eat dinner as a family 1.5 hours
                          dishes and clean kitchen 45minutes
                          family movie 2hours
                          dog time 30mins
                          read bible  1.5hours

If I do the math correctly,  from 6:15-10 is 3.75 hours.  If I add all the things I want to try to complete in an evening it adds up to 7.25 hours.  That means I am in the negative by 3.5 hours.

I am going to be honest.

I don't clean up the kitchen most nights. (That was hard to type) Each day I let my dog out while I am trying to finish the dishes from the night before and cook dinner for the evening, which means I am not really paying the dog any attention. Plus he is an Italian Mastiff he needs way more exercise than what I am providing.
At dinner time, I am so busy eating that I am not really talking or giving Gary and Tyler the attention they deserve.  When we start watching a family movie, I am on the computer trying to read some of my Bible chapters for the day. Tyler might say, "Hey did you see that?" And I will have to ask him to rewind it because I was engrossed in King Ahab's ignorance and Elijah's obedience.

I need to learn time management. I really can't go any further than this right now.
 Pray for me and I will pray for you even if you don't pray for me.

Tomorrow's reading is 2 Kings 16 - 25

  1. You beat yourself up over the slightest thing....You have been that way as long as I can remember...Trying to change your old ways is going to take a lot of work. I think you should concentrate on finishing the bible. Write down all the things you think are your issue with yourself and work on them after you have finished your 3 month task. Adding something new to correct in yourself just does not fit in to your already negative schedule. Start loving yourself more and things will fall into place...well sorta
