Happy New Year!
|an old journal|
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
With the New Year come new goals. One of my goals for myself this year is to make the most of my time. Among other things, I want to spend time reading the Bible, journaling on what I'm reading, and journaling my prayers - this is pen and paper journal, not blog-style.
I have read through the Bible several times in my life, but only once since Nate was born. This year, I was reading it chronologically, but I lost my momentum somewhere in Texas when our schedule was so weird. I have started it back up again every time Nate goes back to school from breaks. Then when he's on break and our schedule is weird, I lose it again. I saw this on Pinterest this week and decided that is a good solution for me.
Read through the Bible in 100 days.
It's a quick pace, for sure! The blogger says that the quick pace helps her stay motivated. It's just about the same length as the first term of school. Do I have time in the day to read 1% of the Bible each day? I will if I'm disciplined in time management. It will be a challenge, but I think I'm up for it!
