The Bible in 90 Days - Chec k in Day 39

If you are participating in the Bible in 90 Days challenge, today you are on Day 39 and should have read through the end of page 468 in the Bible in 90 Days Bible or through Psalms 24:10.

I'm actually a day behind because I have not done today's reading. I was terribly bad and finished the fiction book I was reading this afternoon, instead of doing my daily Bible reading. *blushing and giving you the "I've been caught with my hand in the cookie jar look* I will have plenty of time to catch up here in just a few minutes. I'm about to start my dish water and then settle on the couch with my Bible and a tall glass of sugar free Hawaiian Punch. : )

I admit I had a few rough days with the reading this week. I really struggle over the names in the Bible. I have to force myself to slow down and not skim those sections. I have always enjoyed the book of Esther, so that was a treat! When I first started reading the Bible I had a rough time with Job, but have come to understand it better each time.

How about you? How are you doing with your reading? Any high points, or rough spots for you?

I'm looking forward to jumping in the the Psalms and Proverbs, love those!

Weekly prayer - Peace and Comfort

This week my prayer for my husband is for peace and comfort. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the most painful day in his life. His dear son, Cole, was born asleep.


I lift Eddie to You. You know the pain of loosing a child, while I do not. I cannot share in Eddie's pain, only be here when he needs me. Please touch him and fill him with Your Peace and Comfort during this difficult time. Give me wisdom to know when to speak, and when to just be here for him. I pray that while Eddie will find some comfort in knowing that Cole is with You, and they will be united one glorious day.

Father, I also ask that you touch Cole's mother, during this time.
In Jesus' most precious name, Amen.

TSMSS - Glorious Day

All week long I've had this song from the new "Until The Whole World Hears" album by Casting Crowns on my heart and mind. Thank You , Jesus, for taking the nails for me! I'm so looking forward to that Glorious Day when the Trumpet with sound!

Again, please read and really hear the words!

One day when heaven
Is filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to
Be born of a virgin
He dwelt among men, my example is He


Living He loved me
Dying He saved me
Buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified
Freely forever
One day He's coming
Oh, Glorious Day
Oh, Glorious Day

One day they led Him
Up calvary's mountain
One day they nailed Him
To die on a tree
Suffering anguish
Despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose o'er
Death He had conquered
Now is ascended
My lord evermore

Oh, Glorious Day
Oh, Glorious Day

One day the trumpet will
Sound for His coming
One day the skies with His
Glories will shine
Wonderful day
My beloved was bringing
Glorious Savior this Jesus is mine
