I’m 85% of the way through this 90-day challenge and, yikes!… has it ever started to FEEL like a challenge these past few weeks! I didn’t expect that AT ALL considering the content in the New Testament is so much easier to read than in the Old Testament. But I did underestimate my available time during the course of my day as our homeschooling work load increased and as our events calendar quickly started to fill up this month. For the first time during this journey, I found myself consistently 2-3 days, sometimes 4 days, behind schedule. The good news is I was able to get all caught up thanks to a camping trip that took my husband and boys out of the house this weekend. 🙂
A major milestone that I reached on this challenge so far was reading the entire Old Testament from start to finish for the first time in my life. Woot! Woot! As of this writing, I’m in the book of Acts in the New Testament. Reading the first four gospels in a row in a matter of days was a personally moving experience for me. It was more powerful to me than reading it during any previous bible reading plan. It seemed to have much more clarity and emphasis. Reading through the book of John was especially so.
What an incredible blessing this challenge has been for me! I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me over the next 13 days as I aim for two more milestones: reading the New Testament from start to finish AND, at the same time, reading the ENTIRE BIBLE from cover to cover!
