Like many, I began the new year with a reading plan, with the noble goal of reading through the Bible in a year. But it wasn’t working for me. I really wanted to stick to it. But I didn’t.
Rather, I decided to read selectively, reading a book of the Bible here and another there. This seems to be working for me at the moment. For example, when I had trouble falling to sleep the other night, I stayed up and read Ephesians, 2 Thessalonians, 2 Timothy, and Philemon.
Yesterday I read Ruth. And the day before, I read Ecclesiastes. Occasionally I would be compelled to meditate on a passage, a verse, a phrase, a word, and to record my thoughts in my journal.
