The book I need to be reading is the Bible. And if my time is devoted to reading a fictional book about 2 people meeting, avoiding love, then living happily ever after, then I'm not reading the Bible.
God knew exactly what I needed when He led me to Kelly @ Fly with Me and her amazing proposition to read through the entire Bible in one year. I'm in a valley right now and the only way I know how to get out of it is by seeking God. Studying His word. Searching for His plan.
Every morning I start my day with the good book in hand (through my iphone) and marvel at the knowledge that is right there at my fingertips.
I was more than frustrated last week when my Bible app wasn't working and each morning it would tell me the server was down and I couldn't do my reading. Slowly, I began to feel comfortable with just getting out of bed when the alarm went off and going about my day. It was horrible. I wasn't starting my day the right way, I was going back to my old habit of pushing the Bible out of my plan. Instead of checking every morning, I just started to ignore it. So completely wrong of me.
I need His word. Daily.
Saturday I snuggled myself right up with a cup of coffee & caught up on my reading.
I pray that those of you who are doing the plan are finding it rewarding and encouraging to read about God's promise to us. And those of you who are interested in starting the yearly plan, I'd love to hear from you. We'd love to have you join us. I promise you won't be disappointed.
