As many of you know I’m in Nashville this weekend at BlissDom learning more about blogging, networking, social media and making many friends. On Saturday morning several of the bloggers participating in the 90 Day Challenge got together for coffee (or in my case tea). We chatted about how the reading was going, what we were learning and the amazing response from our readers.
I knew that keeping up this weekend would be a challenge so I brought our Bible on CD with me in the car and listened to my readings on the way down to Nashville and got a little ahead. I now have a little catching up to do, but no worries because I have a 2 1/2 hour drive home and my CD’s are ready.
One thing that I always notice when I read the book of Job is in the very last chapter it says God blessed Job and he had double what he previously had. It then goes on to number what he was blessed with double the amount of sheep, camels, etc. however he is blessed with 3 more daughters and 7 more sons (the same amount he had at the beginning of the book).
It always reminds me that children are an eternal gift. Job did receive double the amount of children. He began with 10 and then he received 10 more. The point to me is that his first 10 children, while no longer still on earth remained part of his eternal inheritance.
I have to say that in some ways listening to someone else read the passages was helpful with my understanding. Nehemiah was read with expression and I was simply struck with God’s amazing provision in a way that I hadn’t previously considered.
So now it’s your turn. Please let me know how you are doing either by linking up a post or leaving me a comment. Our family continues to pray for you daily as you follow this path of reading through His Word in 90 days.
