The Bible in 90 Days


The Bible in 90 84 Days

What an amazing ride this has been!

After many failed attempts at reading through the Bible.. to finish in 84 days is nothing short of God's grace and mercy.  Not until tonight has my husband said anything about my disappearing acts to go read.  He was my silent cheerleader!  Because of the emotional turmoil that has occurred in our home over the past 2 weeks, I was even more focused to stay in the Word.  I know really know that God uses the bad things that happen to us for our good.  Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to me even when I am not faithful!

This last week took me through many books of the New Testament including: Acts, Romans 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 and 2 Peter, 1 and 2 and 3 John, Jude and Revelation.

Here are a couple verses which have stayed with me....

Romans 12:9-13

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Philippians 1:9-11

9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

2 Timothy 2:11-13

11 Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him,
we will also live with him;
12 if we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
13 if we are faithless,
he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.


2 Peter 3:9

9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Revelation 22:12-13

12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
