Hi everybody. As some of you know I try really hard to keep things to a single post a day in order to keep your in-boxes a little tidier. However, I wanted to make sure that you were all aware of the new file in the Printables section of the website. As promised I have finished and uploaded the entire 365 Life reading plan for you. It includes links for all 365 daily readings (minus the Sabbath day’s rest of course). It also includes the number of days we’ve read so far and the date on which each reading will fall. I am asking each and every one of you to be my accountability partners on this! If I skip a day’s reading/posting I need for you to hold me accountable for that reading and I want to hear from you about it. I’m doing this for me first and then sharing the blessing with you all. I need your help in making sure that I keep doing this no matter how difficult it becomes to do it. His Word is LIFE and the moment I forget that I die. Help me remember it! Please!
I also wanted to point out that on the PDF, the readings are separated into 4 week sections called “Books”. I am *hoping* to take the posts from the blog and make them into printed and e-books for those who don’t have internet access or follow the blog yet. This was not part of God’s original mandate to me and so therefore I don’t *have* to do it. However, in order to reach as many people as possible it is something that I would like to do. Therefore, if you spot a typo, or grammar error in a post, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!! I do type them quickly and then edit them quickly. I only have two eyes, you have many more than that and I would love for you to lend them to me. 😉
I love you all so desperately and you are constantly on my heart as I pray for you daily. The fact that you allow me to play a part in your life is not a detail that I take lightly. The Word of God is alive and active and is sharper than a double-edged sword and I pray that we are all wielding it well daily!
The Enemy hates us, but he especially hates when we are reading God’s word every day. And I’m finding that those of us who have chosen to make it our mission to encourage others to read the Bible daily…well he REALLY hates us! These past few weeks I have been through some amazingly difficult battles. Your prayers are extremely powerful and valuable to me and I covet them more than anything right now. Satan is attacking everything he can get his hands on right now to try to get at my heart and make me give up. Thankfully God made me extremely stubborn. However, there have been many casualties from this battle. The powerful sword of James 4:7 says “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” This has been my weapon of choice through these long weeks of war. It comforts me to know that at SOME POINT the devil WILL flee from me and just let me do my job. And until that moment comes I will stand firm in my faith. Because if I don’t stand firm, I won’t stand at all. I am asking you my beloved friends to stand firm with me. To hold my arms up in faith like Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ arms in order to win the battle. I can’t do this alone. I need help. I need you.
