90 day Bible Challenge- Week 5 Resources and Check-in if you're reading.
We've covered much of Israel's history this week. It's hard not to miss the forest for the trees sometimes when reading through all the kings of Israel and Judah. I wrote a post a couple of years ago on a woman's influence in the home that I based on observations of the good and bad kings according to whether their mothers were God-fearing or not. Even the history books of the Bible are applicable to us today!
Then this morning I was reading in 1 Chronicles and was reminded again of the rebellion and redemption of Korah. At the time I wrote that post, I didn't realize that Psalm 42 is also a Psalm of the sons of Korah. That is so cool and knowing the backstory definitely helps me appreciate the cry of the Psalmists heart!
What is the Lord showing you as you commit to reading His Word daily?

- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
