2013 plans for this blog

Along with my time on the treadmill this year, I will be exercising my Spiritual legs as I walk through the Bible.

“… that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.”   Deuteronomy 8:3

The Daily Bible

 

I have chosen to go through The Daily Bible because it is the only Bible that I have actually been able to stick with and read all the way through.  And as the saying goes…

 

 

 

 

What I love about this Bible is that it gives a summary of what you will be reading that day, which is such a help for me to better understand the Scripture.

It also lays out for you exactly what you need to read each day in order to finish in one year…which is no tall feat.  Reading the Bible through in a year is challenging; some days requires quite a bit of reading in some books that, in my mind, are not terribly exciting.

It is a chronological Bible, which gives quite unique insight into God’s great scheme and planning and I have found it to be a very interesting way to read through Scripture.

But what I love most is how it divvy’s up the Psalms.  It is so cool to read David’s struggles with Saul and his enemies, while reading the Psalms he wrote during each struggle, each time of doubt and fear while continuing to give praise to God.

So, my plan this year for this blog is to post the daily reading plan along with insight quotes from the commentary given before each reading from The Daily Bible.  I will continue to post how God works in my life as He leads, but I will focus my time on preparing the book I feel God leading me to write instead of making excuses at to why I can’t.

I hope you will join me on this journey…

“For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”   Romans 15:4

 

My resolution

2013

I sit here facing 2013 and find myself overwhelmed.

As tears fall onto the keyboard I wonder what God wants for me next year and as I do every year, I create a list in my mind of resolutions; things I long to do more of, to do better, to change.

 

But what is it that God wants me to do more of, to do better, to change?  What is His will for me?

 

Oh, I long to glorify Him through my life:

How I spend time with and learn more about Him.

The way I treat my husband and children.

What I do for my health.

What I do with my writing.

The way I act toward the people God placed in my life.

How I use our finances and resources God gives me.

What I think about and what I do when no-one’s watching.

“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”   Revelation 4:11

 

So, I guess, this year I will focus on listening.  Seeking God through His Word and in prayer…as well as through a little sweat on the treadmill.

Psalm 143:8

GOD'S ADDENDUM:
Interestingly enough...I spied God shortly after publishing this blog post, when I opened my email to today's free eBook:

Found: God's Will
