One of the questions Amy asked on today's check-in post is - how are you making time? What are you giving up to make time for your reading?
So, here's what it looks like when I'm doing my reading:
I've got my "Bible in 90 Days" edition of the Bible and a bookmark to track my reading. I use colored pencils to highlight verses that jump out at me, plus I have a little notepad and pen next to me to jot down verses that I want to go back to and look at again when I have more time.
I do about half of the reading in the morning while I drink my coffee before heading off to work. Then, I finish the reading either right when I get home from work or just before heading upstairs to bed.
The biggest thing I have "sacrificed" (though that seems like too strong of a word!) is TV! The nice thing about my house is that I took one up the bedrooms and made it into a den, so my TV is on the 2nd floor rather than downstairs in my living room. That helps me resist the urge to come right home and plop down in front of the TV! Instead, I come home and plop down in my chair downstairs with my Bible!
Leviticus and Numbers were tough to get through, but I LOVE the fact that I only needed to spend a few days on those "tough" books rather than pouring over them for a month or more. I'm in Deuteronomy right now and I'm soaking in so many promises of God's faithfulness - I love it!
Anybody else out there doing this challenge? How's it going for you?
