The kids and I have been working on their verses. The oldest 3 accomplished the goal of learning the 1Cor. 13 love verses. I am so proud of them. The younger ones would have done much better if I had taken more time to work with them. That is my fault.
What is happening in March? I have thrown around many ideas in my mind of a challenge or fast for March. It has been hard to settle on one. I have so many things that I could do better. Good thing I have so many months left in this year to work on these areas of my life!
For March, I have decided to commit to reading my Bible EVERY DAY. Now, I realize this is something that I should be doing already. To be completely honest it falls by the wayside in my life way more than it should. You see, not a day goes by that I don't check my email or spend time looking at blogs. Many days can go by without opening my Bible. I am ashamed to admit it, but it is the truth. I want that to change. I am going to be reading in Psalms to start. If I finish that book, I will let you know what book I move to next. My first priority each afternoon during nap time is reading my Bible, not working on the computer.
God is doing something in my heart. I don't know what it is, but it feels life changing. I really desire at this time to lean into that and pursue Him with everything in me in order to truly discern what He is doing. Committing to this time in His Word is one way that I am seeking Him as He speaks to me. I cannot wait to see how He reveals Himself to me, and hope that I have exciting things to share throughout the month.
Can anyone out there relate to what I am saying? Would anyone like to join me in reading the Psalms this month? I would love to read it with others. Imagine how God could speak to all of us and use this in our lives!!
So, if you dare, join me. Let's see what God reveals to us. Let's see how He uses His Word to change our lives!!
