I read the bible every single day. This has not always been the case for me, but has been in 2020. The bible has forever been a part of my life, I have had at least one (closer to 10) in my home and on my bookshelf. I follow along with scripture while I am sitting in church. There have been a few times over the years that I have tried to start “reading the bible in a year.” Following along with a game plan laid out in the first few pages of my bible. Each time though, it has fell by the way side quickly.
Anyhow, on January 1st of this year I decided to start “The One Year Bible” plan on my Bible App. It is the very first thing that I do every morning. I start my day out this way to ground me, to inspire me and to remind me. I read the verses that are assigned to me for the day, while thinking about how they might apply to me and the world around me. Taking the seeds and words that I need for that day. Fairly regularly I find a verse that I really feel and create an image out of it, then share it, in case there is anyone else who needs those same words for their day.
I am a planner. So, every single day I start out with a plan of what my day is supposed to look like. It is when those plans go off course, that I start to have a difficult day. Tuesday’s are the only day that we schedule to go out of the house each week, I think maybe that is what makes Tuesday’s the toughest day in this quarantine. You would think that I would be able to remember by now that when my plans go off course, it is because they weren’t God’s plans.
Sometimes our plans are the same. Other times, he knows what is better and even if I can’t see it through my frustration at the time, I need to believe that is the case. So, here’s to Tuesday! Here is to purpose that the Lord has for me ❤
