12-1-2011 Adventures in Bible reading

December 1, 2011 Leave a comment

This past week has gone surprisingly well as I have managed to do something I haven’t been successful doing in the past: getting up early and reading the Word.

Unless you count the euphoria of rising early for a vacation or Saturday mornings getting up to watch Bugs Bunny cartoons, I have never been a morning person. But yet mornings are really the best time to spend with God. Early mornings when nobody else is up.

So, I’ve reminded myself that by getting to bed at a decent hour, I will have an easier time getting up early to spend it with God.

Currently, all I have left until the end of the year is the Minor Prophets and Proverbs in the Old Testament and then Acts and Romans in the New Testament. It’s been a bumpy ride, but it’s looking like 2011 will be a year in which I read the Bible completely through cover to cover.
