Are you still with us? I haven't sent any notes out to those of us who had decided to read the Bible in a year in a while, so I thought I'd check up on you! (One of us has dropped out of the program because of massive Bible study required to prepare lessons...just checking to see if you are doing daily reading...).
I've had my good weeks and bad weeks, but after a couple of marathon reading sessions I am back on track. Today's reading (in the plan I'm on) was really good -- Solomon had just finished building the temple and he said this:
56 "Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. 57 May the LORD our God be with us as he was with our fathers; may he never leave us nor forsake us. 58 May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways and to keep the commands, decrees and regulations he gave our fathers. 59 And may these words of mine, which I have prayed before the LORD, be near to the LORD our God day and night, that he may uphold the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to each day's need, 60 so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD is God and that there is no other. 61 But your hearts must be fully committed to the LORD our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time." (1 Kings 8:56-61, NIV).
