The 66in52 Bible challenge that I began in January has been a welcome and needed opportunity for my devotional life.
I look forward to my drive time to listen to each reading. And while I haven’t always heard the words, I know that the act of listening is still important. And sometimes I find myself grabbing my Bible after I’ve listened to something and looking at it again.
Sometimes I sit in church and my mind wanders off while the Scripture is being read. The same thing happens in the car, but the great thing about audio technology is that I can listen again and again until I hear it and digest what God is revealing to me.
It’s been amazing for me to see how the Scripture connects to what is happening in my life and in our world here and now. And when difficult things happen, there has been a comforting word.
The Bible App has been an amazing tool for me to match words and pictures in a way to share my journey on social media.
Some of the books in the Old Testament are difficult to listen to. There is death, disobedience and God’s judgement. Yet, He never leaves. He is always present, even in the tough stuff.
And through this challenge, I have learned that the Bible is a never-ending tool for connecting with God. I hope to have many opportunities in future years to go back and study each of these books again and again.
39 books down, 27 to go. Yes, we are more than halfway through this challenge, but what I continue to learn in this process is that it’s never too late to start. There isn’t a timer or a deadline, it’s always a good time to read, listen and meditate on God’s Word because it has been gifted to us in deepening our relationship with Jesus and those around us.
I would love for you to join as I dive into the New Testament!
