The Bible in 90 Days.

I'll be honest. When I'm not enrolled in a weekly Bible study, I really don't get into the Word as often as I should.
I wish I were more disciplined, but sadly, I am not.
I came across this program The Bible in 90 Days, put out by Zondervan. Of course it says you must buy such and such version of the Bible. I'll be honest again. I probably won't.
But I would like to give the curriculum a shot. If it will help me establish a routine of getting into the Word on a daily basis, I'm all for it.
You see, it's not that I don't want to be, it's just that I don't make the effort.
Isn't that true of so much in life.
This year, I'm going to ask God to help me change that.
To give me more self-discipline.
To give me a renewed hunger for His word and the promises He gives me through it.
To stoke the fire within me again. I know the embers are burning, but they could produce a lot more heat if I let them.
I'd love it if you'd pray for me as I commit to this challenge. And if you'd like to join in, I've put the link on my blogroll on the right hand side of this page. Let me know if you join!

"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."
Matthew 6:33

I hear you.
Its about the focus.
It is so easy for me to focus on what is right in front of my face all the time.
Stepping out of the natural realm is tough... I feel like I need a step ladder sometimes.

Good luck! I can't do it right now, because I am to busy with Community Bible Study, but it does look interesting.
