Still chugging along through b90x. I'm over halfway done with the plan. I'm a couple days behind, but I'm into Ecclesiastes and am hoping to knock out Song of Songs and about 20 chapters of Isaiah today haha. It's doable. Gotta catch up!

I just got done with Proverbs, and it kicked my butt. It's one of those books that seems random. There are a ton of tidbits, and the way it's set up seems like it's just individual pieces of advice strung together. But reading the whole thing through was good for me. There are so many practical, day-to-day things to take away from it. I felt like I was slapped in the face a couple times when I would read about patience, sharing joy, containing anger, not gossiping, respect. So many things I struggle with on a daily basis.
Sometimes doing this kind of intense reading plan causes me rush through in order to get the day's reading finished, but it's good the know that the Lord will always speak to me through His word.

  1. Hey Kelly, thanks for your comment on my blog!

    Proverbs is great. I haven't read through all of it but I totally get what you mean about it seeming random, but giving lots of little bits to take away.

    PS - you are beautiful!! I don't mean it to sound creepy or whatever, since it's the first time I've visited your blog, but that's a totally gorgeous photo!
