It Must Be A God Thing

As I mentioned last week, I have decided to join in with hundreds of other women by reading the Bible in 90 days.  All of us together, reading and soaking up God's Word for the next 3 months.  This journey starts on Monday.  You can read my post HERE.  So, anyway, each of us are placed in a Mentor Group so we can receive support from someone who has done this huge, monumental task before.  I was excited to see my blogging friend Jenni from Sincerely Jenni and I were placed in the same group.  I thought THAT was a God Thing.  Then to my complete amazement, I found out my Mentor, Karen, lives just 20 minutes from me in another small town!  Out of the hundreds of women and mentors participating in this challenge, I think that is utterly amazing.  So that is my God Thing #2.  Karen has a great bio and blogs about her life HERE.  I encourage you to be enlightened by Karen and her message!  So, I guess God really wants me to do this Bible reading challenge!  He has placed some amazing women in my life to support and encourage me.  Now, I just need to do my part. 

So, starting on Monday, please pray that I can structure my days to read and soak in His Word.  Pray that I can make uninterrupted time for it every day.  Pray that His words speak to me and open up my heart to receive them.  Pray that when I am struggling through the tough chapters, He keeps me plugging through.  Thank you.

I will keep you posted on my progress and my thoughts during this journey.  I know it will be tough, but I think the reward is so worth it.

I thought it was pretty monumental that we got put in the same group. What a small world that brought several of us from Iowa together for this challenge!

I'm from Iowa as well, so to find 3 of you in our Group #30 are from Iowa was pretty cool for me too! :) I'm SO excited for this! Not only am I excited to read through God's Word, but to have accountability and camaraderie amidst the challenge? PERFECTION!
