So every day I read six chapters of the Bible:
one from Genesis to Deuteronomy
one from Joshua to Esther
one from Job to Song of Songs
one from Isaiah to Malachi
one from Matthew to Acts
and one from Romans to Revelation
And then repeat as you reach the end of each section.
The original recommendations was actually five a day with the first being Genesis through Esther but when I started, I really wanted to read Joshua. So I added in a sixth chapter. Once I'm done one of those two (either Gen. to Deut. or Josh. to Esther) I'm going to drop back down to five but I recently realized that there's a giant hole in my knowledge of the Bible from Joshua to Esther (with the exception of David). Anyways.
As I read everyday I take a highlighter and pick out the verses that resonate that day and make a note of them in a journal. Today the only verse that really stood out is quite possibly the least comforting verse of Scripture:
Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion.
The disciples - who were mostly fishermen and so were used to being in boats - are freaking out because the storm is so bad. And where's Jesus? Oh you know... taking a nap. I just find the image kind of hilarious.
