I really can't believe it, but the 90 Day Challenge ends today. And Obi and I both finished our Bibles last night! I felt like doing a dance, whooping and hollering, but since the little kids were all sleeping I didn't. But I was seriously excited. I told Obi and Han and then Obi stayed up late and finished his. Han is still working on finishing his reading and I am confident he will have it finished by tonight.
I am so glad that I read the Bible in 90 days. Reading it so quickly really gave me a different perspective and there was such a contrast in the reading for me from the Old Testament to the New Testament. I have always loved the Old Testament, but after the prophets I felt very weighed down with the law and all the disobedience and punishments on the nation of Israel. The New Testament felt like a breath of fresh air and mercy and grace.
When I was about 1/3 of the way through the readings, I thought it would be neat to start a chronological Bible as soon as I was finished with the 90 days. But now I want to start the New Testament over and spend some more time there and study more in depths all the teachings of Jesus. I just don't want to lose the discipline I have had in my reading. I have put on hold most of my blogging, reading other books, and some other projects I would like to get to. But what a great 90 days of reading it has been. I am already planning on doing it again next year!
