Day 10 of 90

I have completed the first 10 days of the Read the Bible in 90 days challenge.

I hesitated to post about it here or even tell friends or E about it.  I wasn't sure that I could do it and didn't want to have to tell people that I couldn't do it.  So, I kept it to myself for a few days to see how it would go.

I shocked myself because I truly enjoyed it. I felt that I was not just getting through each day, playing games and doing puzzles that are mindless.  I had a goal and adult reading to do each and every day.  I enjoy the challenge.  I enjoy reading the bible in larger chunks.  It honestly flows better and parts read more like a novel than I thought it would.

So, at just 10 days into the challenge (today is day 11 and I am about to get started on that while the house is still quiet), I have read all of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and through chapter 8 of Numbers. 

As a side note, let me just warn anyone wanting to read Leviticus, do not do so near, during or after meal time.  The sacrifices are pretty disgusting.  Maybe this will turn out to be a great diet plan too.....

Off to read Numbers 9-21:7   :)

I am so proud of you! It sounds as though you are doing well! Keep to it!
I just prayed for your reading... and for your courage to share with others that you are reading.

Who knows who you might inspire?
