Bible Reading Challenge Testimony!

Hello child of God, 

This week has taken it's toll on me but that won't stop me from praising the most high God, I hope yours has been good to you.

It's time for a little testimony don't you think? If you have been following this blog then you know I have been doing a Bible reading challenge whereby I have to read the Bible daily.  I have achieved this by signing up for a bible study plan on Biblegateway.com,  check them out if you can.
What I really like about this is that I can listen to the scriptures(I do this often), and read on the days that I have missed, on Monday I'd be catching up the weekend readings.

My testimonial is that reading the Bible has helped my prayer life a lot. I find that my prayers are authoritative and strong. I don't doubt anything I say in prayer and some of the things I declare from scripture itself.
Not only that but this has brought me closer to God,  it draws me near to him. I'm now on Jeremiah,  started from Psalms, all that I've read exalts God therefore bringing me to that position which ultimately makes my relationship with him  better. Praise and worship is not only music and singing but it is becoming my life.

I've realised that I rely on this a lot lately and cannot go a day without. I even get sad when I finish a book because I was getting amped up for it and getting used to it, then wish it could end at the 100th chapter.
Also, I can remember some of the scriptures and I can tell if a certain phrase has been said in other books.I was worried that I won't be able to remember anything that I read but I seem to surprise myself.

I look forward to the changes this is going to bring in my life, if a month or so of reading scripture is giving me such joy and peace and full dependence on God what is a lifetime going to yield! If you have not started I urge that you do, we cannot claim to be Christians and not read the word from our God that speaks truth, where are we to look for directions?

I really want to encourage you to start no matter how small, pray to Holy Spirit to help you and he will be there every step of the way, even if it is devotionals. It is not as difficult as I thought it was going to be and it definitely has not been like reading a novel, I get shaken and stirred and sometimes want to stand up in ovation(while I am at work lol), this happens when I fully agree with the scripture at the time.

 I hope this has found you well and share your testimony in the comments. Until next post, God bless...
