I'm a Geek!

I am a geek!  Only a geek would get excited when our Pastor announced that the Bible League of Canada Devotional Day Planner was in and available.  I managed to grab one of the last ones available.  I actually got a little nervous I wouldn't get one when I saw so many of the ladies with them at coffee.  This lovely planner has daily devotional readings, an area to write daily prayer requests and several reading plans.  This year the main reading plan is a chronological reading of the Bible in a year.

Last year I attempted to read the Bible in 90 days with Moms Toolbox.  I made it through to Luke.  That's the furthest I have ever made it in one go.  I justified that I have read Acts to Jude on my own before and in other studies.  So the only book I haven't read is Revelation.  Note how I put "justified".  I feel bad that I didn't finish the B90 challenge.  I enjoyed reading and learning more of God's word and the history of God's people.  I feel like a "drop out. "B90 drop out, no graduation day for you....."  I can hear Frankie Avalon singing it to me while I sit in a nice church pew (think Grease, without the pink hair).  

This fall I decided not to try the challenge again.  I wanted to focus on  getting up and studying daily (I'm still working on this) with Good Morning Girls.  I've met a great bunch of ladies who I have become close to even though I have only met one of them in person.  But.....I still feel lead to read my Bible start to finish.  

This fall I also discovered this and have been coveting it ever since.:

I love the look of this Bible and since I do not currently own a NKJV translation, it is definitely the one I will be ordering in the future.  It comes with maps and articles about the historical context.  It also is in full colour.  

Because I do not believe in coincidences, but believe in the leading of the Holy Spirit, I feel lead to read the Bible chronologically this year.  I will be posting a weekly reading plan on my side bar and posting each Thursday what God has been teaching me or leading me in my reading.  The reading plan I will be following is from the Devotional Day Planner.  If anyone is interested in joining me I may post a link each week after my post.  

I can not wait to get started and can not wait to see where God leads me in this journey.  Won't you join me?

I'm linking up with Soli Deo Gloria Sisterhood at Finding Heaven.

Visiting from SDG. My Mama had the Chronological Study Bible. I really liked the way it was divided up. Glad you are making another go at reading through the Scriptures. There is always something fresh for us there.

I have one of those Bibles and enjoy reading it "as it happened." This year my husband gave me a "Names of God Devotional Bible." Already I am enjoying seeing the Hebrew words for God highlighted in each verse. Don't you just love studying God's Word?!!

Hmmm, I may have to look at that Bible when I go shopping for a new one soon. I wonder what other translations they have it in?

I did manage to do the B90 challenge. It was tough some days and I plan to do it at least twice this year as I figure the more times you study the bible the better. It was the first time I acutally managed to do something like that.
I would love to get the chronological bible someday. It seems like it would be really interesting and I believe it would help me understand the bible more.
I love that you are doing a bible study. I sadly lack that here and miss the friendships I made while I was in one.
Take care and I hope you had an amazing Christmas!!!
