Living and Active

For the Word of God
 is Living and Active. 
Hebrews 4:12
There was a time in my life when the Bible was the last thing that I wanted to read.  I felt that it was boring and dry, so I began to pray that God would help me want to read the Bible.  That is the kind of prayer God loves to answer!  Over time, I have become excited about reading the Bible, and I continually find treasures that inspire, encourage, and challenge me.  God’s word is my lifeline.
Throughout 2012, I will be reading The Daily Bible.  It is the NIV Bible, in chronological order with 365 daily readings.  My mother-in-law shared her copy with me while we were in Missouri for Christmas.  She has been reading it for the past eight years.  In return, I gave her a copy of The Message, a version that I love.  I invite you to join us as we read through the Bible this year.
I hope this will be a wonderful year for you.  I am looking forward to discovering on an even deeper level what it means for God’s words to be “living and active” in my life.
NOTE: If you are new to Bible reading I suggest you start in the gospel of Mark or in Psalms or Proverbs.  Also, listening to the Bible on CD is a great way to experience the Bible.
