B90 Check In + More than this Monday

Hello all! For the next three months More than this Monday and the Bible in 90 days check in will be one and the same. This is wholly appropriate because what is "more than this" if not the Bible?

I'm on target. Monday is day five. Of course I'm writing this early Monday morning, which is still superbowl watching time for those readers in America. Being so early I haven't done my day five reading, but I've done the four days previous.

As I mentioned at the launch, I began seeing things I'd not seen before from the very onset. And I'm finding spiritually spending that much time in the Word is already having an impact on me. I'm getting married in the near future, and without trying to on my part I'm finding the Lord is exposing wounds left by men in my past which for the most part I was unaware existed.  He's obviously exposing it for healing prior to my wedding so Ryan and I can be healthier in our marriage. Yay for God! I'm so glad I'm doing this.

Genesis is so chock full of stories it's a pretty fast read. I'm very familiar with the book, so the danger for me is not being present with it but relying on things I've seen there in the past. This isn't the first time I've read the Bible all the way through (I think it's the fifth) plus several  years ago my Bible study did an intense verse by verse study on Genesis that last two years... and then later this year my Sunday School class took over a year to do Genesis. If there is a book in the Bible I am more familiar with than any other it'd probably be Genesis, though maybe the gospels. This familiarity is both awesome and a weakness in that sometimes we think we know something well enough it has nothing new to show us. So I was trying to be sensitive to the Spirit and listen for new insight, and it did come.

For those of you who are doing the B90 challenge with me, check in below. Are you on target? Have you some keen insight you would like to share? Something funny, sad, etc? Tell us in the comments or if you blog you can link up a blog post about it if you want to...

Want to join us? This is the last call, but if you want to start your 90 days today I'd be happy to send you the reading list and invite you to the facebook group. After today, the group is finalized. We'd be happy to have you!

Not joining us? Link up with any deep reflection from the week if you'd like...

the Songs on the Way


  1. I am so glad that I started blogging and linked it to More than this Monday
    and here is the post

  2. Checking in!

    1 day behind. Our little cat passed away today and I focused on the family this afternoon rather than anything personal. Hopefully I can squeak in today's before I fall asleep (though it is nearly 11 pm already- not looking too promising). If not it will be a catch-up day tomorrow!

    As for opinions so far: At our rapid rate, you only have time to read the "surface story". I almost feel 6 again and just listening to someone read to me- taking it in but not asking why, or when, or how. Just hearing the story for the story's sake. It's a neat feeling.

  3. Checking in, just a little behind. Son had a wrestling tourney this weekend. But i plan on getting caught up tonight.


Thanks so much for comments, they delight me! Please keep your comments civil and while I read every comment, I reserve the right to delete ones that are especially negative. Thanks!
