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!
