So I am doing this thing. It will challenge and grow me. I need it so I am doing it. I have never read through the bible before but I am doing it now, this way. MY kids will be too they just don't know it yet. However, not in 90 days for them. they will just be reading the Bible daily. Unless I make sure that they are reading God's word how else are they going to know what God's plan is for all of us? So since we will be taking the summer off this year for the first time ever this is a good time for me to do something like this before the madness of me being a full time college student starts in August. I will surely need some spiritual fuel to get me through that. There is a Facebook page but for now I will not be on that. I have asked to join but only for this challenge purpose. Until I hear that God says it is OK for me to be back on there I will. I have cheated on my no Facebook commitment here and there due to curiosities and mostly me wanting to do mindless wandering so I don't have to think about the things God is dealing with me on. This was a revelation to me last night so I am committed to staying off for now. I have sought forgiveness in going against something God does not want me doing for now. I have received his Grace and Mercy. I am thankful for it. So God has put it on my heart that first thing in the morning is my Internet time. This is the time to read the blogs, write the blog, catch up on the news, and check the email. The only other time will be for my schoolwork and getting my recipes for dinner. There will be no mindless searching during those times. There are other things I can do better use of my time while waiting for meals to cook or pages to load. SO for now i sit with my coffee. Take in daily readings. Breathe in God's word, and enjoy the worship music I will soon be playing.
