I'm a couple of days late in posting this but I think it'll be ok since it seems that I'm talking to myself anyway! lol If anyone is still with me, I'd love to hear how this week has gone.
For me, it has been the most challenging by far. I have battled the responsibilities of life as well as the laziness of my flesh! I missed a day and a half of reading, which left me needing to spend several hours after the family was in bed, catching up. Some might ask, "why bother?". The only thing I can tell you is that completing this challenge is extremely important to me. I feel like it's something that I have to do.
One thing I have learned is that I have to manage my time wisely in order to complete this challenge. I cannot relax in the evening and watch Dick Van Dyke episodes on dvd with the family :) Some days, I simply want to veg at the end of the day but the wise thing to do is to spend that time reading God's Word. So, has it been easy? No. Has it been worth it? YES!
God's Word is alive with truth and promises. The more I read, the more the Lord opens my eyes to His truths! It is so worth the commitment and sacrifice.
Pray for me the next two weeks. We will be leaving Monday for NC, so I will need to find time to read while staying in a hotel room with the family and visiting with friends. Maybe this past week was preparation!
Until next week...
