So are you hooked yet?
Today marks the first day of our fifth week in reading the Bible in 90 days together.
As I admitted here before, this has been a tougher reading session for me. With lots of prayer and lots of reading, I am finally right where I need to be. But it wasn’t easy to get here. :)
In reading the comments, my emails, tweets and such I have learned that this has been a challenge for many of you, too. This is not an easy task– but it is most definitely a worthwhile one. And it is one you CAN do with the Holy Spirit right beside you.
Old Testament reading is especially tough. There is so much hatred, killing, hurt and pain and things that sill don;t make sense to me as I read it in my post New Testament world. Reading much of it puzzles me. As I read those things I do my nest to read His word, think about it and ask God to guide me through.
I don’t believe that all His words are there for me to understand. I do believe that they are all there for me to read, though. He’ll reveal what I need to understand when the time is right.
But that’s me.
So, as we launch into week 5, I’d like to know how YOU deal with passages which puzzle you. Do you investigate? Do you try to understand it all? Do you just read and keep rolling? Do you approach these things in another way.
Let us know in the comments… and also let us know how you are doing. I pray that you are hanging in there no matter where you are in the reading.
