So in accordance with my 30 Day Blog challenge, I’m starting a 31 Day Life Challenge. I pray every morning and I read my bible every day but I’ve come to realize it’s all become a routine. I don’t actually READ my bible. So here I am, renewing my love with Christ.

 I dunno if anyone is interested in joining me but if you are let it be known in the comment section and I may start a Book club type series for this plan. The new disqus app for comments makes conversation via comments easier. You can reply to people and stuff. But I’ll only start that up if enough people show interest. If not. I shall just write my thoughts in my trusty (physical) journal. 

I feel like every story and word in the bible has a message if you just look for it. So I’m gonna make sure I get at least one thing from every passage I read. I hope it’s not too hard though. 

Reading plan was obtained from here. (They have a bunch of other plans that I may start up once I’m done with this one.)

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
