A vow to myself.

I recently made a promise to myself.

I absolutely love to read. I am currently waiting on the sequel to my favorite book, "Salvaged" to come out. However, I cannot read this book until I complete something.

I hate how I get excited about reading a book, but I cannot get excited about reading the Bible. Why devote my time to a book that is just for pleasure, when I could devote my time to a book that is saving my life and soul. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Salvaged, but this is something that was weighing heavy on my heart.

So here's my promise to myself.

I WILL NOT read a book for myself until I completely read the Bible all the way through.
I started on it this week and so far I have read Galatians through 2nd Thessalonians. I know these books don't have many chapters to them, maybe 6 at the most, but still for reading every night(ish) for 3 or 4 days now, I say that's pretty good. Tonight I read Colossians through 2nd Thessalonians and I could not put it down. It was so good! I absolutely love when scriptures pop out to me while I'm reading God's Word. I think my favorite verse(s) tonight were: 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 5:1-4.

I am loving my self challenge.

Won't you join me?

On a Mission for God,
Cherish
