I can't believe it's been a whole two weeks since I've posted anything here on my blog. But I have to say that most of my time has been spent the past two weeks reading the Bible. Over 500 members of my church have made a commitment to read "The Bible in 90 Days." I have been in yearly Bible studies for years, but this is my first attempt to read the Bible cover to cover, 12 pages a day. It has meant giving up some times I use in other ways, like making cards, keeping up with my blog, and giving up all the time I waste on my computer and the television.It is great that this is butting up against Lent. Instead of giving something up, and doing without it, I have replaced that with an action that is the greatest thing I could do for my Lord. Read His word, learn His history, and begin to incorporate it into my life. I haven't really given anything up, I have simply prioritized my time in putting the Lord first. Learning about my heritage as a servant of the Lord is the best thing I have done in a very long time. His righteousness is what I long for.
