Day 90 Update

02 Apr

Today is day 90 of the Bible in 90 Days challenge hosted by MomsToolbox.  Congratulations to all those that have finished!  I currently happen to be on day 50, but one of these days I’ll finish it.

I started the 90 day read because I really need to read the bible all the way through for a change. I thought 90 days was a good challenge and I had every intention of keeping up with it.  But then one day was extra busy and I didn’t get all my reading done, and the next was busy and I got further behind, and then because it was busy and I was tired, I played a game instead of reading, and before I knew it, I was a good week behind.   Oh, I put forth the extra effort to get caught up, but then I let the things of this world get in the way and fell behind again.  Rinse and repeat.  That brings us to day 90 and I’m still on day 50.

But that’s okay.  I’m perfectly okay with being on day 50 because I know I will finish it.  I’d like to say I’ve set my own goal date to finish by, but I’d be lying if I did. I’ll get there when I get there and I refuse to allow myself to feel bad over it.  I know there will be a day where I can pick up my bible and all on my own finish it in 90 days, and I’ll be overjoyed whenever that day arrives. In the meantime, I’ll just be overjoyed to say that for the first time ever I’ll have read the entire bible straight through.

In the meantime, I plan to join MomsToolbox for Blogging Through the Gospels, which starts Monday.  Figured I might as well since I’m going to be reading the Gospels anyway, right?  LOL

I’m also participating in the “Try It” challenge from Peak313. She’s challenging everyone that joins to try a new food each week.  Who knows, maybe we’ll find something we really like!

Also ongoing is the 21 Days of Prayer for Sons challenge, where we’re reading Warrior Prayers: Praying the Word for Boys in the Areas They Need it Most by Brooke McGlothlin.  Each day for 21 weekdays, we pray for a specific area of our boys lives.  Day 1 started off with obedience.  I’ve gone ahead and started praying day 2 (submission to authority) today b/c my boys need A LOT of extra prayers in those two areas.   Only have little girls in your house?  Then join us anyway and pray for your future sons-in-law!


I’d love to see you join us on one  (or more!) of the challenges!

    I almost gave up around the end of the OT. Once you get into the NT, though, there's a renewed energy. I'm glad you haven't given up! Only 38 more reading days! 🙂
