Happy 2014, ladies! I hope the new year is starting off great for each of you.
Girls, as I was browsing the comments about what you’d like to see on Project Inspired this year, I noticed more than a few were about wanting to see more goals and challenges on the site.
I feel like God is telling me that 2014 will be full of challenges for many people. I don’t think challenges themselves are necessarily good or bad. Challenges help us learn and grow, and the results can be very exciting!
I want to start off the year encouraging all of us to make more time for the Word of God in our lives, so I’ve developed a challenge for each of us to read one book of the Bible each week for the next six weeks.
Here’s the order.
Week 1: Philemon
Week 2: Ruth
Week 3: Ephesians
Week 4: Ezra
Week 5: Ecclesiastes
Week 6: Gospel of Mark
Girls, you may notice that while the books on the list aren’t super long, they do get a little longer each week. That’s so we can be challenged to spend a little more time in God’s Word as we go.
If you’re a fast reader, then at the beginning of the challenge when the books are really short, try reading through them more than once during the week. This is a great way to really put the Word of God in your heart!
I’ll be joining you in this challenge to get more of God’s Word each week. I’m really excited to share this journey with you and to hear your thoughts on the books we’ll be reading!
“I will meditate on Your precepts and regard Your ways. I shall delight in Your statutes; I shall not forget Your word.” —Psalm 119:15-16
How about it, girls—will you join me in the Book-a-Week Bible Challenge?
