Hungry? Thirsty? Dry?

Unsatisfied?  Longing?  Discontent?  Lost?  Empty?  Famished?

Do any of these words describe how you have been feeling lately?  They do me.  I am in the Word everyday, yet I feel this longing for more.

Last summer, as a family, we felt the Lord leading us to read through the bible in 40 days.  Due to schedule and age some of us read the Old or the New Testament or various combinations.  I read through the whole bible in that 40 days and it was awesome!  It was difficult and very time consuming, but by the grace of God I made it.

Last week I felt the Lord calling me to be in the Word more.  As I prayed about it, I decided to read through the New Testament in 40 days.  It is only about 30 minutes a day! 

I would LOVE it if you would join me.  I am going to start July 18, 2011.  You can google ‘read through the bible in 40 days’ to come up with a schedule.  Let me know if you are going to join in!

Oh, I almost forgot, I am going to be reading through the Psalms and Proverbs during this time too.  You know how that works, right?  On July 18 I will read Psalm 18, 48, 78, 108, and 138, as well as Proverbs 18.  So, you read the Psalm that corresponds to the date and then add 30 until you run our of Psalms and read the Proverb for that date also.  Make sense?

Hope you join in!

I just finished reading the Bible starting in January. I'm back at the Old Testament.

I will join you in this, the NT in 40 days.

Every time I read His Word, I find new truths. God is so awesome, and I can not get enough of Him!

Have a wonderful weekend.
Your sister in the Lord and friend, Ruth
