  1. Such a good word!! Decades ago I found reading the Bible a chore…but the older I got the more willing I was to at least dig into it a little. I’m 68 now, and have been reading through the Bible each year for a fair number of years, using the One Year Bible. I love it–God’s Word has become the greatest adventure story I’ve ever been privileged to participate in. Each year I learn more about God. And when I prayed that He’d “highlight” things He wanted me to take special notice of–because I wanted to be like several favorite pastors who seemed to have a gift for noticing things beneath the surface of the words–He gladly answered my prayer. So as I’m reading each day, I’m talking with Him–asking questions, or saying, “Oh wow, Lord–I remember this from last year” (or maybe the opposite–that I’m seeing something new or fresh to me). And as we go along, He speaks to me–especially in regard to the inner healing I still need from much past abuse. Some days I cry through my reading/talking time with Him…and sometimes we have a laugh together–it’s fun to be friends with JESUS!

    I recently discovered Rabbi Jason Sobel on TBN, and I’m eager to read his book, “Mysteries of the Messiah”!! He’s fascinating to listen to 🙂

    May God bless you hugely throughout the remainder of Holy Week <3

    • Hi Zelda,

      Thank you so much for sharing your experience. it is indeed fascinating how God would answer our day-to-day questions and concerns by simply reading the Bible.

      May God bless us all as we celebrate and commemorate the saving grace of God when he came, died, and rose.

      May the grace, forgiveness, and the love of God continue to be your strength and healing.
