At the beginning of May the Sisters began their new challenge to again read through the Bible and pray for the entire world in a year. There have been a few days of getting behind on the reading and not praying. It's bound to happen. When we feel like we're failing at our challenge, the Sisters have reminded themselves that the goal was to read the Bible through in a year, not to read the Bible every day. We do strive to read every day but there are times that our human side fails at this effort.
The nice thing about the reading plan the Sisters chose is that it has built in days to allow a person to catch up with their reading if they fall behind. Are you using the reflection days? I know I am. Continuing a previous habit is easy but starting a new one is hard.
I'm here to encourage you. Don't give up. If you've fallen behind, that's okay. Pray and ask God to help you desire to be in His Word. Choose to start fresh each day with the purpose to read the Word and to learn from it.
You can do it!
