We are at the end of week one of my 11 week quest for organization and, while my accomplishments can’t be seen, I did meet my goal.
My goal this week was to make reading from the Bible a daily habit. I didn’t put any restrictions on time or how much to read. I simply read as much as I could each day.
Would you believe that I read through three books of the Bible using this “method”? Granted, they weren’t the longest books of the Bible, but they were some of my favorites.
I read through Daniel, Esther, and Ruth, and I always find a lot of encouragement from those books.
Also, I love the stories of those three people’s lives. Stories of standing strong, of faith, and of love. They make me wonder what my story will be when I am gone. They make me want to be more.
I am not sure which book I am going to read next, but I know I want to keep up this habit of daily Bible reading.
Are you in a busy season of life where you find yourself putting off reading the Bible because you have too much to do?
I just want to encourage you to make the time. If we can’t find the time to put reading the Bible as a top priority then how can we ever expect to have the time to have an organized home?
I bet you can. I am. 🙂
Did you join me this week? What verses of the Bible did you read this week that were the most encouraging to you?
