Some of you have been asking about this project that I'm doing for the next few months. It all started with a comment my friend Crystal made about how much she had been wanting this beautiful new wallpaper for her entryway. In short, she was frustrated with herself for desiring such a frivolous, material thing more than she was desiring God's Word. She said, "Why do I want to spend so much money on this stupid paper when I should literally just write Bible verses all over my walls and cover them with Truth?"
So I decided to do just that. I thought through a few different ways to do it, and I settled on covering the walls with pages from an old hymnal (thanks for the idea, Emily!) and then writing verses over the pages. I started covering the walls last week - I'm realizing now I should take pictures for you - and when it came time to start writing the verses, I didn't know where to start.
As Fraulein Maria would say, "Start at the very beginning...a very good place to start." So I rifled through some old emails and found this plan, written by my friend Jenna Battleson. I began on July 2nd, so hopefully I should be done by the beginning of October. Although it's a lot each day, ultimately I feel less intimidated doing it this way than if I were to try the more popular reading-through-the-Bible-in-one-year. One year seems to provide a much greater margin for procrastination. I'll let you know how it goes.
I pray that this inspires you to dig deeper into His Words, and wallpaper your life with His Truth.
Reading Through the Bible in 93 Days - Chronological Order.
:::UPDATE - September 19, 2011:::
Trying to do an intense Bible reading challenge along with a daily Beth Moore study? Bad idea. I have 5 days left in my study, then I intend to try the 93-day challenge again. In the meantime, I am deleting the table that includes the "schedule" of readings, because it was messing with my blog layout. Will repost when I try again :)
