OK, since Sunday Sims is on indefinite hiatus (its resuming depends on me being able to figure out where exactly I put the Sims 2 disk once I got Sims 3), I want to do something new.
I've been having difficulty finding motivation to do my individual Bible/prayer times lately, so I decided I'd do something a little bit more public with it. I am in the middle of reading through the entire Bible. I read until I find something that jumps out at me, even if I can't quite figure out why, and then I underline it and pray about it. In Leviticus and Numbers, I frequently read chapters at a time, while now as I'm in Psalms I've occasionally stopped every other verse.
So every Sunday, I am going to post the verses or passages I was struck by throughout the week. No comments, just the verses themselves. Right now I'm reading through it in the Message version, just as a fresh take on it, so that's the version that will be posted.
Tuesday - Psalm 104:29-30
If you turned your back,
they’d die in a minute—
Take back your Spirit and they die,
revert to original mud;
Send out your Spirit and they spring to life—
the whole countryside in bloom and blossom.
Wednesday - Psalm 105:5
Keep your eyes open for God, watch for his works;
be alert for signs of his presence.
Friday - Psalm 106:4a
Remember me, God, when you enjoy your people.
As you can see, I was not as good about doing this faithfully as I hoped, but that's part of the reason I'm doing this. Here's to next week!
