A few weeks ago I contemplated beginning the B90 (read the entire Bible in 90 days) program again. I finished this for the 3rd time back in April, and I thought I might want to tackle the challenge again. I considered which translation I wanted to read, and about two or three weeks ago I actually began the B90 plan.
I lasted 8 days.
I am not sure why I decided to stop. I have enjoyed my B90 readings the other times, and I have learned so much! But this time, it just wasn't what I felt I needed right now.
So I am currently studying two different Bible study books. One, Worthy Women, by Mary Alice Wilhelm, is the book we are using for our monthly Ladies' Bible Class. I am reading the lessons and copying down every single Scripture that is mentioned or quoted. I am also making notes and personal applications as needed, and I am taking my time when answering the questions at the end of each chapter.
I am also studying Sweet Journey by Teri Maxwell. I am using the same procedure with this book. My plan is to alternate between the two books each day.
I also am continuing to list five things I am thankful for each day in my thankful journal, and I am currently keeping my prayer request list in the back of this journal.
One more thing about prayer requests--I may have shared this before, but when I am asked to pray about something, I try to write it down right at that moment, either in a notebook or on a sticky note. Then later, I copy it into my thankful journal. I also have a folder in my gmail account where I put all of the prayer requests I receive via email. I copy these into my thankful journal too. It is so encouraging to look back at prayers and the little checkmarks and dates I put beside them as they are answered.
How is your Bible study going?
