About 2 weeks ago, I decided to take on the monumental - but rewarding - task of reading through the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation. I realized....here I am... 28 years old and I have never read the entire Bible! Sad....such a shame. All I have ever known of the Old Testament has been what I learned in Sunday school or what I have read in a sermon on Sunday mornings. I had never actually read it and studied it for myself.
So, I began to read. I was ( and still am) so motivated and excited to read God's word! Even the begats....and all those measurements for the ark, table, altar, lamp stand, and tabernacle.....and priest garments. Whew...just got through all of that 2 nights ago. I am into Leviticus now, so I am reading about what kind of offering to give for sins. It is really interesting....and a bit repetitive at times. But I am approaching it with the spirit of excitement and learning.
At the same time, I am also reading The Color Purple. The English teacher in me had been craving some literature, and I had just watched the last episode of Oprah ( if I had been alone, I would have been boo-hooing!) and I realized I had never read The Color Purple! So...I took on that task as well. So far, it is an interesting read.....very interesting.
I am so excited about reading through the Bible! It's definitely a goal I know I will accomplish!
