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!

That's a wonderful plan Heather. God will be faithful and can surely guide you through this. It is hard but SO worth it. I'll be praying that God gives you endurance and patience when you struggle. Keep me posted on how it's going.
