Three years ago, a friend challenged me to pick out my favorite verse from every book in the Bible–and I had one week to do it. One week for all 66 books. At first I freaked out thinking I’d have to read the entire Bible in one week on top of the five trillion other things I had going on in one of the most hectic seasons of my life. Then I remembered that I had just finished reading the Bible in a year, and I am an AVID highlighter. It was still hard to read through and find a favorite, though. There are so many!
When my friend looked over all of my verses, she told me she saw a pattern. That pattern told her how I viewed God and what my relationship with Him was. I looked back recently and saw exactly what she was talking about, but that’s a post for another day.
I’ve been thinking lately that it would be interesting to do that again and see if my perception / relationship has changed. And THEN I thought it would be a lot more interesting if several of us did this together, one book a week, verses posted every Wednesday. Anyone care to join me? If so, pick your favorite verse, the one that tugs your heart and speaks to you the most, even if it seems “strange” to you. You’ll be surprised at what you find and what God speaks to you.
Are you up to the challenge? If so, take a stroll through Genesis this week and, on next Wednesday’s blog, we’ll share.
Let’s get to know Him better together…
