Well, dear readers…here we are at 16 days in with the new year… and what have we done? Have you put your priority plan in gear for 2021?
In the past I’ve made several attempts at the ‘read the Bible in one year’ plan. I am sorry to say, however, that I have never completed that quest. Oh, I do read plenty in the Bible. I have my favorite passages I refer to often and I’ve embarked on whole studies of certain books. But never have I accomplished the goal of reading the Bible all the way through from front to back in 12 months.
Friends, you know as well as I do there’s a world of difference between ‘want to’ and ‘DONE’!
This year my #1 goal is to read the Bible all the way from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 before midnight on December 31, 2021.
There, I’ve put it in writing. Now, I have to do it!
Putting it in this public forum will hold me accountable. So far, so good. I am in Genesis 43 and re-discovering with renewed interest all the history of our forefathers and our relationship to our Creator. Like us, they had wins and losses. Have you read what Joseph’s brothers did to him? It does have a good ending, I promise. Perhaps we all can apply Joseph’s handling of the matter to our own sibling relationships.
Anyway, check back here often to see my progress…..
…..which brings me to another priority for 2021:
I promise to write at least one blog post per month in 2021!
Stay tuned for further developments, and I’m cheering you on in your priorities for 2021!
Love, grace and peace,
