Bible in 90 Days {B90} ~ Day 88 Check-in

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

It’s official!! Last night {Day 87} I read the last page of Revelation, closed my Bible and FINISHED READING THROUGH THE BIBLE.

Sorry for shouting.

Needless to say, I’m a wee bit excited. For me this has been a huge accomplishment personally and saying I’m 'proud’ of myself seems wrong {grins}, so excited pretty much sums it up.

I went between two different Bibles this week, so my notes & underlinings are all over the place ~ so I feel a bit scattered in my thoughts on what I read.  My reading this week was from the beginning of 2 Corinthians through Revelation.

Here are a few things that I marked and jotted down this week:

~ So much of the things I read this week were a huge encouragement {obviously since they were letters written to various churches}, but hearing repeatedly of all the Christ did for us was wonderful. Love this verse:

‘God made you alive with Christ. He forgave all our sins. He canceled the record that contained the charges against us. He took it and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ’s cross.’

Colossians 2:13b-14

~ I know we are told to live each day as if Christ is returning soon, but I wonder how the early Christians felt as the years progressed and Christ had not returned as quickly as they thought he would.

~ The persecution that the early church endured ~ and that we are so fortunate to not endure right now.

~ The whole issue of discipline {both for myself and what it means as a parent}

‘No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening ~ it is painful! But afterward there will be a quiet harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs.’

Hebrews 12:11-12

There was so.much.more that I enjoyed this week, but you all would be overwhelmed if I listed it all out. Let’s just say there was lots of underlining, much conviction, plenty of encouragement and even more to ponder.

  4. Congratulations! You should be excited. I have really enjoyed all of your posts. I am way behind, but I am still going to keep plugging away. Life has gotten in the way, but I am trying not to be discouraged that I won't get it done in 90 days. I have read more of my Bible than ever before, so I am feeling good about that. Thanks for sharing your journey.

  7. Almost forgot to mention: for the first time, I made your recipe for Loaded BBQ Potato Casserole. Oh my word. It was absolutely scrumptious. I know my weight is going to be up tomorrow morning, and it's all your fault - well, that, and the fact that I ate way too much of it. ;) That recipe is definitely going in my 9-week menu rotation!

  8. Look at you! You should be excited and yelling...that is a huge accomplishment. I started this but got away from it. I plan on picking it back up very soon (I'm hoping next week). Thanks for sharing your walk through the Bible with us.
