Resolution #1: Read the Bible. Every day.

Established: January 1, 2010.

I’ve started and restarted my quest to read the entire Bible for the last two years, and have yet to stick with it. I’ve tried cover-to-cover. Mixing it up. Totally random. Chronologically. But, I get lost and confused and tired.

So, to help, I now own this:

Sweet bible, yo!

This is the One Year Bible. And look how small and cute it is! It fits in my purse. And it was available in New Living Translation. My favorite of all the translations. Not too dumbed down (hello, The Message), but none of the thine, thee, thou-ing that makes me take twice as long to read and understand the exact same passage.

Every day is broken down into a 15-minute devotional that takes you through some old testament, new testament, psalms and proverbs. 2010 will be my year! I’m so dedicted that I even got myself out of a warm bed, and onto cold wood flooring because I forgot to read Sunday night. SUNDAY. That’s the Lord’s day, y’all.

Anyway.

I’m on day five. I’m liking it. I’m sure Jesus is liking it too.
