Bible In A Year!!

Sunday, August 19, 2018

So, I tried to do this Bible in a year program before and totally failed at it. That has kept me from trying again. But I want to know God's Word and know Him better, and to do that, you have to read the Bible. And other than the Bible in a year program, I have no idea how to go about it.

So I went to church today and the sermon was spot on, just what I needed to hear. I have not gone in weeks due to my anxiety, and picking today to go was definitely a God thing. I came home and found a book on Amazon, it is just a basic book for the Bible in a year, lists what you are to read that day and gives you room to write about it and write a prayer. I also found a prayer journal, I have a hard time keeping my own, so I thought buying a very simple one would help. I found a cheap and pretty 120 page one.

So on a whim, I thought I needed a partner, an accountability buddy. My first thought was for S but she is running missions and would be too busy. Then C came to mind and I didn't think, I just messaged her and asked. She said she'd do it with me right away. Of course I'll buy the journal/book for both of us and mail it to her. She is one of my best friends and we have not seen each other in like 8 years! I can't wait till I can order the books and get started!

What prompted all this? A lot of things but mostly that I want a closer relationship with my savior and this is the best way I can think about going about it.

What does this have to do with Sparks? "Live Healthy & Happy" it says. I'm working on it, and for me, God is a major part of that. So it would only be right for me to include that journey with my healthy living journey, because to me, it is my healthy living journey!

    Keep at I've read it twice through but I think studying it through carries more insight for life changes & decisions.

    God bless & be encouraged.
