We are rapidly approaching the finish line. Granted, once we reach the end we aren't "really" finished since we will want to continue spending time in God's word. However, I can't help but get a
The last several days have been completely overwhelming for me, but in a GREAT way. I was blessed to attend the full Hearts at Home National Conference and I am so completely recharged, rejuvenated, and READY to tackle some new things with God. At the moment, I am exhausted. I wasn't expecting that! It's so strange to be SO encouraged and READY to embrace motherhood in a deeper capacity, yet so physically and emotionally drained. I plan to take the next several days just soaking in everything I learned and spending some one-on-one time with God as I wait for Him to show me which things I learned that He wants me to focus on first. I'm sure there will be many posts coming up in the next few weeks! :)
While I was attending and giving every once of my heart to Him to fully absorb EVERYTHING, I OFTEN thought of B90 and the blessing of having spent so much time in His word. I noticed something incredible. Many times speakers would quote scripture, but they wouldn't necessarily give the chapter and verse. I found that MANY times I KNEW where it came from. So many times before I would recognize a verse, but I would be CLUELESS as to where it was found in the Bible. THIS time I often was able to automatically know the reference. It may not have been exact chapter and verse, but I knew which book and area to look. When they would give a scripture reference, I was able to RAPIDLY turn to it. My confidence in using my Bible SOARED. It was proof to my heart that even though this is FAST reading, it IS SOAKING in. Though I've known the benefits of B90 for a long time and obviously BELIEVE in the power it brings emotionally and spiritually, this weekend gave me a practical glimpse of how it is changing me and I just sat there with tears in my eyes many times for the gratitude. OH my.
I admit that I am now about 3 days behind. I initially planned to keep up with B90 through the Hearts conference, but once I got there I realized that I really needed to give all of me to the experience and I was so overwhelmed in the evenings with how much information I had heard through the day that I couldn't focus on the reading. I have a plan in place to hopefully be fully caught up by the end of Tuesday night. I still want to finish strong!
I pray that each of you have an incredible week in God's word and that something you read EVERY day brings you closer to Him in a fresh new way.
