I need to be held accountable...

Last night I was able to sit alone and think. It has been a long time since I had some peace and quiet. Do you know what I thought about? Caleb? No. My marriage? No. I thought about my relationship with God. Or should I say lack there of. I used to have such a passion for the Lord. I haven't truly read the Bible in months. I blame time. I know it is a horrible excuse because everyone has the same amount of time that I have and still some find some time to be alone with the Lord. I just rather spend my time with Caleb, watching TV, on the computer, or trying to rest. Through my conviction, I knew that I needed to rekindle my love for the Lord. I know it is still there.

Now came the question, " Where do I start?" Do I start studying Romans? 1 or 2 Corinthians? Ephesians? No. I felt that I needed to start at the beginning. I am going to start in Genesis and end in Revelations.. all in 365 days. Yep, I am going to read the Bible in 1 year. I know it is ambitious and I know it will be hard, but I need to do it. I also plan on keeping an on-line journal of this journey. I hope I can keep up with it.

Have a great week!
