"I read an article recently by Jim Elliff that challenged me to read the Bible more broadly than just a few verses or even a chapter a day—to consume it as a hearty meal, rather than an hors d’oeuvre (that is seriously hard to spell!). Elliff argued that if we read the Bible as often as we read other books (or, I would add: blogs, texts, and social media), we would likely succeed in reading it from cover to cover three times in one year. The article suggested that we could (and should) tackle whole books at once, reading shorter ones straight-through repeatedly every day for a week or a month to really engage with it fully." #openyourbible #shereadstruth #srtstudypacks

I can’t think of any reason why someone would not reblog this. 
If this isn’t interesting/sad to you, then I don’t know what you like in life.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. ~ 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

" …We went through fire and flood, but You brought us to a place of abundance" (Psalm 66:12, NLT).
In scripture, three Hebrew teenagers, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, were told to bow down to the king’s idol or they would be thrown into a fiery furnace. They said, “No, King. We’re not going to bow down. We know our God will deliver us.” Their attitude was, “We’re not worried about it. We know we have inside information. We know everything is going to be alright.” Notice they didn’t fight it. They weren’t upset. They weren’t complaining. They were at peace. They knew God Almighty had His hand upon them. The guards threw them into the fiery furnace, and when all was said and done, they came out without even the smell of smoke on them!
Notice that God didn’t deliver them from the fire; He delivered them through the fire. Maybe you are going through the fire today. Know that God is with you. He’s doing a work in you, and He’s displaying His glory through you. Remember, on the other side of the fire is a place of abundance and blessing! Stand strong and see the fulfillment of the promises He has in store for you!
