During the month of August, St Michael’s started a Bible reading challenge. As part of that, I was interviewed by Stacey in the 5pm Sunday service regarding my personal Bible reading. This is an excerpt from that interview…
In the mornings, I usually read a page from a daily devotional book called “Our Daily Journey”. There is a reading with related Bible verses and this has proved to be a real encouragement to me and has kept me on a steady reading and devotional program.
Just recently I started the Bible reading challenge and have a text buddy to go through Galatians, and that has replaced my devotional book at the moment. In the last few months, I have also started reading a Psalm at night.
My favourite book of the Bible at the moment is Psalms. Recently, I have been through a life crisis. Last November, after 38 years of marriage, my husband and I separated. During this time I have had to reach out to God and hang onto His words like I never have before in my life.
The Bible reading challenge has been really helpful because not only does it ensure I read the Bible each day, it also makes me think about what I am reading and what God is saying to us through His word. I have been going through Galatians and have been reminded that we no longer live under the law, but in God’s grace and as Christians, that faith is expressed in loving others.
I would encourage everyone to find a text (or phone) buddy to read the Bible with, someone you can have open and honest questions and dialogue with and who is willing to listen to your point of view. That means together, you can explore the riches of His word.
