be blessed

Our pastor, David Stine, challenged our church to commit to reading the Bible for 20minutes/day for 40 days.  The challenge involved getting 1000 people to sign up for the challenge in exchange for him reading the entire New Testament in one sitting.   1000 people stepped up and last night at 7pm he began reading.  I listened until 3am and then fell asleep with the word of God filling our room.  It was amazing to rest for five hours and awake with the living word pouring into my soul!  The first words I heard this morning were from Romans 9:25… I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,” and, “it will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’ “

Isn’t that beautiful?!  “I will call her ‘my loved one’…. God’s love note to me this morning.  Love that. 🙂

Anyway, I thought there might be a reader out there who might enjoy filling their spirit today with the word.  After 14 hours, he’s in 1 Corinthians…. a little over halfway through!  Go, PD!!


2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Psalm 119:103 How sweet your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey. (I’ve been claiming this over PD’s throat all night.)
