I am hopeful. Hopeful for many AMAZING things to happen in 2010. Hopeful that in 2010 I can pour more passionately into my children…that they will feel more loved in the year ahead…that they will thrive in that love…and that I will know them more–and they will know me more. Isn’t that what we really want with our children?! A true, solid, vulnerable, REAL relationship with our prized gifts from the Lord?! Well, I TRULY believe that THIS is the EXACT way the Lord feels about US…HIS CHILDREN!
This has been on my heart for the last several months—and I’m taking the challenge that I once took as a new believer…gosh almost 15 years ago. It’s TIME to take it again! It’s TIME for me to MAKE TIME! Who’s up for the challenge?! In 2010, this momma is challenging herself to once again read through the Bible in a year! Who’s in with me?!
Because I’m believing that in 2010 God is going to USE ME…I wanna have His word written on my heart. Believe BIG things with me—that He is going to use YOU big in 2010 too as you seek to know His heart deeper!!! Because He loves me—DEEPLY—and because He loves my children—DEEPLY—and because He loves you DEEPLY…I wanna know Him—DEEPLY! DON’t YOU?! And there is no better place to learn His heart than through His Word!
OK—you have 3 days to think on it…pray about it…but if I know me—which I think I know me;)…I can be the QUEEN of procrastination if I don’t have accountability…so I’m declaring this blog my accountability for 2010! Each night in the wee hours I’ll post the NEXT DAY’s reading! I’m going to post a chronological reading so I read the events as they actually occured. I’ll read different versions here and there—commentaries to add when I run across them…and if YOU…yes, you who are reading my blog but not commenting;)…wanna join me—oh…want you pray about joining me in digging in His Word and knowing His heart deeper in 2010?!…and each day—for those of YOU who join me…PLEASE feel free, open, welcome and invited to comment on how the reading touched your heart, spoke to you or something you learned in it that day. It is going to be an AMAZING year—and I can’t wait to see how each day’s reading not only draws me closer to the heart of God…but also how each day lines up with what is going on today in YOUR world and MINE!
Think about it! Pray about it! I just know it will be one challenge of 2010 that neither of us regret!!!
And just a few days early…HAPPY NEW YEAR!
