Bible In 90 Days…What Does That Have To Do With Cleaning?
(Re-posting: This is my third year, and now I listen year ’round not trying to force the 90 day period)
Is it a fair statement to say that we cannot grow more Christlike if we don’t remain in the Word of God?
Starting January 2, I began a challenge to read the Bible in 90 days. I felt the leading to do this but soon realized I could be in over my head….
Instead of stopping all together when life throws more at me than I can handle, why not LISTEN to the Bible? I can’t just give up and let the evil one win!
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” ~Romans 10:17
I am not an iPod type of gal, y.e.t.! My adult children are trying to prompt me that way, but for now, I use streaming audio to at Faith Comes By Hearing. They also offer both Old and New Testament Bible (dramatized) for MP3 download in many languages.
So what does listening to the Bible have to do with cleaning?
While you listen, you can wash your stove and counters…
wash and fold laundry…
wash your cabinets…
wash the dishes or load the dishwasher…
mop the floors…
water your plants…
and wash out cabinets.
The list of (potentially quiet) things we do as moms and homemakers is endless: cleaning closets, dusting, cooking and baking, stripping and making beds, washing windows, putting away groceries, and don’t forget chauffeuring (use the CD player or iPod). We could never do all these things in one week, but broken down over many weeks, it becomes do-able.
O, to worship at the feet of the Savior right where our work means the most ~ in the home where we nurture and minister to those in our care. My desire is to be sweeter spirited, model my love for the Word to my family, and practice intentional diligence.
*****If things happen to keep us from completing our plans to read the Bible or if we have to stop for a time, don’t feel guilty or throw in the towel. We are under grace! Pick up and start again.******
It is still January. Would you consider coming alongside me in this Bible listening challenge?
