Read a chapter of Proverbs a day during May. This is the challenge presented by our pastor at Open Door last Sunday which is an answer to prayer for me personally. I am growing more and more hungry for God's Word, not just a Bible study or devotional but His Word alone! I'd just told my girlfriends during last Thursday's study that I needed to be held accountable for getting into His Word but honestly didn't want to devote more time to another study group which might sound really bad but let's just be honest, you seriously can church/study group yourself to death, right?!?! Come on friends, honesty! SO here I was, presented with the challenge and jumpstart I needed to dig in to Proverbs and it has blessed me each day!! I received the encouragement I needed to get into His Word, I have friends around me talking about the scripture each day and asking "have you read your scripture" - ACCOUNTABILITY is huge - and Open Door's blog (blog.go2odm.com) to check out for even more insight into the daily scripture. I just love the way God answers prayers. Not only does He answer (in His time) but He seems to add some extra blessings into the mix. It makes me feel so special!
Do you need a jumpstart into God's Word?? Join me in reading a chapter of Proverbs a day during May. Yes, today is day 6 but the chapters are not that long so read 3 today and 4 tomorrow and you'll be right on track. I would love to chat about them so feel free to come back and comment on whatever touches your heart or ministers to you in some special way! Check out Open Door's blog for some good nuggets each day as well.
THANKS ODM! What a great challenge!
