B90 Check In/ Week 1
I am behind by one days reading, but I plan to read a few extra chapters each day to be caught back up.
And even if I stay on track and don't get behind anymore, I would still be on track with the 2 free days.
I have never read the Bible all the way through, and I things are really meshing together, and making more sense for me, by reading it this way.
When I read the Old Testament stories, I am confused, lol.
I don't understand why these women would have been OK with their husband sleeping with other women, I don't understand why it was OK to lie, or at least why there seemed to be no repercussions, I don't understand why all the people did not trust in God after all He had done for them.
But, I also see that these people were not perfect, just as we are not perfect, and that they still found God's favor.
I learned that there are consequences to our actions, even if we are forgiven, there may still be a consequence.
There are a lot of things that I don't really understand about the Old Testament.
Things seem to be harsh, which is something you never hear about God. Not that He is unjust, but just that what we see as unfair, is just how He wants it, which can be a hard pill to swallow sometimes.
I see how things go together much more than I ever had before.
I can not wait to finish the entire Bible, and I know that I will have a much better understanding of the whole thing, instead of bits and pieces.
See ya next week!
It's time for another Throw Back Thursday! These are some of my favorite posts because I get to look back and see what I wrote this...
