THREE YEARS FOUR MONTHS AND FIVE DAYS

_140_245_Book.538.cover MED

I did it! On December 1, 2011 I began reading THE EXPANDED BIBLE today May 5, 2015 I finished! I have read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation on numerous occasions using various translations- King James, New King James, Amplified, The Message, The Voice and New International Version. I have read the entire Bible in one year and in 4 months, this time I chose to take my time and study God’s Word.
I did not read it in the order it appears in the book, nor did I give myself a set number of chapters to read a day, some days I only read one verse.
I like THE EXPANDED BIBLE, I had received a complimentary copy in 2011 for review. I like the comments, and other translations that are placed next to the word or phrase. But I know this Bible is not for everyone, for a beginner it might be to much information. For those who want to just read without the detailed study the comments will interrupt the flow. I wanted to study God’s word which is why I like this Bible better than the Amplified translation.
Every time I read the Bible I learn something new and every time I finish reading the Bible I realize there is still more to learn. Taking my time reading THE EXPANDED BIBLE was a great experience, however, it will be a while before I take on the task of reading from Genesis to Revelation again (I will stick to topical studies).

GOD WANTS YOU WELL

BIBLE 3

“God Wants You Well” is the name of a message and Bible study by Andrew Wommack. Beginning January 30, 2014, 10AM at Miami Vineyard Community Church.

The term “well” encompasses more than just physical healing. Ask a person: How are you?” and the answers will include emotional and physical responses.

  • “I am sad.”
  • “I hurt.”
  • “I am worried.”
  • “I just lost my house, I don’t know what to do!”
  • “I am getting a divorced.”
  • “My daughter is pregnant.”
  • “My son said he is homosexual.”
  • “The doctor says I have cancer.”
  • “The doctor says my dad has Alzheimer’s.”

God Wants You Well” is created to help the believer receive healing. As we go through the Scriptures each person will develop the necessary tools to overcome whatever situation he or she is in.

I will be teaching this course at my church home Miami Vineyard Community Church,  ALL ARE WELCOME.

1 Peter 2:21-25 The Message
21-25 This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.
He never did one thing wrong,
Not once said anything amiss.
They called him every name in the book and he said nothing back. He suffered in silence, content to let God set things right. He used his servant body to carry our sins to the Cross so we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way. His wounds became your healing. You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you’re named and kept for good by the Shepherd of your souls.

THE 5 YEAR PLAN

English: Wal calendar

December is the month I start reading my Bible, if I am going to read it from Genesis to Revelation.  I started reading the Expanded Bible  in its’ entirety December 20011 and I am still reading it, I am not in a hurry.  In the past I am usually finished sometime in the summer.

December is also the time when I start working on my goals for the upcoming year. This year in addition to finishing my books: Sister Sharon and Disappointing Hope I am working on my Series 6 licence.  Thus I have gone through my 2014 calendar and given myself deadlines.   The first week of January I will be taking the exam for my investment license and Sister Sharon should be ready for publication by March 1.

New for my December list is changing the way I eat and exercise.  Basically I have been eating what I want and exercising very little. Last month I started physical therapy for a hip problem and I have been obediently exercising at home twice a year which has motivated me to pay attention to the foods I eat.

This may seem like a lot but it is not.  I have a plan, a five year plan in fact.  This is how I make sure that I do not settle for yesterday’s good news. Some of my goals are flexible, which is why I am still reading the Expanded Bible.  Some of my goals have a definite end date: I must get my series 6 license sooner rather than later.  Some of my goals are unending, getting healthier and writing. All of my goals are directly related to my purpose in life.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What are you going to do to make in happen? Why are you waiting for January 1 to start?

BOOK REVIEW: THE 30 DAY PRAISE CHALLENGE by Becky Harling

cover32952-mediumIf you do something long enough it goes past being a habit and becomes a lifestyle. THE 30 DAY PRAISE CHALLENGE by Becky Harling will help you develop a life of praise and worship.

As a firm believer of spending more time giving God glory than a list of complaints I agree with THE 30 DAY PRAISE CHALLENGE 100%.  One of the reasons why I appreciated this book is because it was written by someone who has been there and done that.

This book is a great response to those who are going through difficult times…….. continue reading at BEYOND THE BOOKSTORE
