Bible Reading Challenge 60 – Week 5

60 OrangeMy Bible reading challenge this week included a struggle to stay awake at times. I feel sad when I am too sleepy to finish my reading in the evenings because I know I am not soaking in the Truth I would be if I were alert. Week 5 marks the least amount of weekly reading thus far, yet full of rich, applicable treasures. Nehemiah held some "Aha" verses – as if they were written to give me understanding of the times in which I live now. Esther needs no promotion – what a beautiful picture of courage and grace. Job, in the midst of losing more than I ever have – not only remained faithful to God, but also spoke confidently to his "friend judges." He understood that God sovereignly allowed his life to be touched by great pain, and He trusted His God to be good. 

"Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him: but I will maintain mine own ways before Him." – Job 13:15
