I have a tendency to camp out in Scripture. And by camp out I mean I TRY to camp out. Usually, I get distracted by the birds of doubt, the trees of impatience, and the cricket chirps of a busy life. I have never really the person to spend hours pouring over Scripture. A chapter or two usually does it for me. And, if I’m most honest, I have to admit that I’ve never read the whole Bible (have you heard a sermon on Obadiah?! Just sayin…)
After seeing God work in BIG ways while I was in South Africa, I realized I wanted to know more. I want to learn the will of God. I want to see His heart. I want to discern what is from Him and not from Him. The best way to do this is to spend time with Him in prayer and reading His Word. God gave us the Bible so we can learn about Him, right?
So, I decided to challenge myself and read through the Bible, cover-to-cover, in 3 months. That way, I won’t have time to sit by the fire, making s’mores while I camp out in a passage. And, I’ll be able to see trends more easily. Promises God fulfills, God’s faithfulness, and His love for us. I’ve already picked up on so much in the past week that I never realized before! It’s amazing to see the story of the Israelites unfold from day to day. I love watching God fulfill promises. I love being reassured of His steadfast love and protection.
Thankfully, I’m not doing this alone. My soon-to-be IRL friend, Katy has joined me! We are in a similar transition right now. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to dive into the Word head first while getting to know Katy and her beautiful heart.
The sprint has begun and I’m excited for what God has planned during these next 3 months!
