End of book - but only the beginning of changes in heart, hand, and life.

The Bible in 90 Days was an adventure to say the least. It was a challenge at times, even for one who loves God's Word, and is in the habit of daily taking it in. It was made sweet by the times God's Word repeated a truth and it was so noticeable that I sat up and grabbed a colored pencil to highlight the truth the stood out in its repetition.

Having a group to share the challenges, ah-ha moments, and delights made it rich. Its like a trip taken with family versus a trip taken alone. It is hard to share sights and experiences using words alone to describe it to friends and family, its far better to have shared memories, photos, and shared history.

The Bible in 90 Days program provides you with a fast paced walk through God's Word that is meant to be shared. The sharing and insight God gives you as you attentively read His Word provides a desire to move into more of His Word when the day 90 comes and you read the final chapter and last verse.

When I reached that point 2 days ago I was speechless, I exhaled loudly - it was a prayer of thanks for His Word, His message, His invitation to life in its fullness.

And so, at our church, we begin a church wide Bible in 90 Days beginning Sunday, September 12th. In the planning for this we've already begun to make brand new friends and deeper other new ones. We are SO excited to hear the heart of our ministers who long for the people of God to take in the Word of God. (Thanks be to God!)

I'm excited for what we'll learn, share, and be challenged by as we read through the Bible in 90 Days this fall - what an Advent season we shall have!

If you are interested and happen to live in the Tulsa, OK area, check it out! We will have multiple avenues of times each week that might fit your schedule to join us weekly as we read through the Bible in 90 days. I'd love to have you as a partner on this journey.


Truth For Life
The unfolding of Your words give light;
It gives understanding to the simple
Psalm 119:130

Yay! I had a funny moment - I sent a note to a friend whose prayers were answered about her little girl's battle with cancer, and I signed it TGBTG - She sent me a note back and said "does that mean Thankfully God Brings the Good or what? I don't get it!" When I called her and told her what it meant, she sat there, completely silent, and then said "I am so glad God loves us even when our brains shut off!" Amen to that!!
