Happy New Year!
As I was sitting alone with my thoughts this morning, I could not help but realize they were rather blue. I don't care to go into details here, but as I sat down to work on my read through the Bible in a year, I felt empty inside. Tried to pray and felt empty inside and came down and read my online "Daily Bread" devotional and got smacked between the eyes:
Regular intake of God’s Word is a worthy practice, but it’s not an end in itself. The prophet Ezekiel spoke to an audience who loved to listen but refused to act. The Lord said to Ezekiel: “Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them” (33:32).

He is in fact speaking to those who plan to read the Bible through in a year.
Don't just read it, Live it! David MacCasland. Evidently I needed some heart surgery before I got to working on my goal! BTW: isn't our God awesome?!!!!!
Happy New Year!
