Last year I took this challenge. I was blessed by it, so this year I will be doing it again.
I'm going to be sacrificing some of my "free" time to spending more time in the Word of God. Jesus gave us the ultimate sacrifice by dying for me to pay for my sins and to show appreciation I'll be working to hide some of God's Word in my heart via memorization and through reading my Bible get to know my God and Savoir better. I will also be intentionally spending more time in prayer. I usually spend 15-30 minutes most days in the Word, so my goal is to spend 2 or more hours building my personal relationship with God. I'm also going to be encouraging my kids to read their Bibles more, listen to Bible Stories and pray more this week, too.
Would you like to join me in this challenge? Think of what you could learn from the word if you cut out 1 regularly watched TV show, listened to the Bible on CD instead of your radio while driving, not pick up a book you are currently reading or planning on reading, read your Bible during part of your lunch break, or got off the internet for 1-2 hours a day.
I'm currently reading Numbers, so I will continue through that book off the Bible before choosing another book, I'm planning on praying for our missionary of the week and the people who have needs in our Sunday School class as well as for my family members, and I am going to begin memorizing a passage from 1 Thessalonians.
Thinking of taking this challenge? Tell me where you would like to start reading.
