Last week, Michael was looking for his old work notebook. He still can't find it. He did find a notebook full of some notes and prayer requests from several years ago that I started. It was like a kick in the pants really. The dates just blew my mind that it had been so long! :(
So today I started again. I got out the notebook, a pen, and my Bible. The kids and Michael watched some TV for 'rest time' and I closed the door in my room and started to read and write. I have a book to help me read my Bible in a year, but couldn't find it. So I simply went to 1 Corinthians and started to read. I read 2 chapters. The theme I kept reading over and over is "GOD IS FAITHFUL!" Oh how true that is!! God has proven himself faithful time and time again in our lives - in the mundane, and the magnificent! Not that God *has* to prove himself, but it's just something, well, something we as mere mortals seem to desire. 1 Corinthians 1:9 says "God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful." And then onward in 1 Corinthians 2:5 is says "so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power." I so need reminding of that... more than I'd like to admit!!
So I'm asking for some accountability. I want to read my Bible and talk with God every day. I want it to be more meaningful. I want to set aside time daily to do that... and keep notes. I want to add your prayer requests and praises to my list, and see how God is working in your lives as well as my own!!
If you have a moment, will you do this one thing for me? Leave a comment or an email, just a little 'poke' to see how it's going :)
