Why am I doing a blog on daily Bible reading?

CTRL-click here to read "My New Year's Resolution for Daily Bible Reading: 5 Ways to Commit to Regular Scripture Reading for 2009 and Anytime" (in a new window). This article, published on AC, includes a personal testimony.

Basically, the answer to this question is threefold:

1) Personally, I believe the Lord has prodded me to become more accountable in this area.

2) As a writer, I hope to share the insights and truths He reveals through the daily study of His Word.

3) Most important, I trust we can all learn from one another, as readers and blog followers share (in comments) what God has taught each of us in the process.

Blessings all around.


Welcome to The Heart of a Ready Writer

Welcome to
The Heart of a Ready Writer.

“My heart overflows with a good theme.

I address my verses to the King.

My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”

(Psalm 45:1, NIV)

Throughout 2009, many folks will be reading through the entire Bible together. This includes several beloved brothers and sisters in my own home church. We will be using The Daily Bible in Chronological Order: 365 Daily Readings.

Published by Harvest House, this book contains the actual text of the whole Bible, arranged in chronological (or historical) order. Helpful subheads, cross-references and short backgrounders have been included. We are excited to participate together in this fresh way to read the holy Scriptures.

We invite you to join us.

Here, at The Heart of a Ready Writer, you will find frequent (perhaps even daily) entries to correspond to the readings in this daily devotional.

The Heart of a Ready Writer is not intended to be a Bible commentary, a Bible study guide, or a comprehensive analysis of the daily readings. It will, however, aim to share insights, unusual perspectives and blessings gleaned from the passages, as the Lord provides. Content may include anecdotes, art, Bible verses, journaling, photography, poetry, prayers, prose, sketches, testimonies and more.

We invite you to subscribe and become a regular reader. (Perhaps you will choose to follow this blog.) Even more, we invite you to visit often and leave comments to share what the Lord is teaching you, as you journey through His Word, the Bible, with us in 2009.

May God bless the reading of His Word and cause it to bear fruit and faith in the lives of many worldwide.

"So is my word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." (Isaiah 55:11, NIV)
