Sure, I stayed up late on New Year’s Eve, but I couldn’t wait to get out of bed this morning. New Year’s Day is one of my favorite days of all. It’s a holiday, so there’s plenty of time to lollygag in the morning, but it’s a day off with no presents to buy, no food to make, no expectations to fulfill.
All week I’ve been working on setting goals for the year ahead — making a plan and checking it twice. Like a little girl with a backpack full of brand new school supplies on her first day of school, I hustled to my special chair this morning with anticipation. A fresh start! A new Bible reading plan! A new journal with empty pages! Let’s go!
If you need a little help staying on track with Bible reading this year, check out my 2015 Bible Reading Plan page. I’d be thrilled to have you join me in reading a chapter a day (Monday-Friday with weekends free for catch up). Let’s see what new things God wants to do in our midst in 2015!
“Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?” Isaiah 43:19
