It has happened. I have fallen behind in my 90 day reading plan as I have previously talked about. (I am trying to follow the plan to read the Bible in 90 days).

However I could feel my failure before I fell behind. I waited until right before bed to read the chapters for the day. I was sleepy and trying to read at least 10 chapters a night. Not a good combination. Why did I wait till the last moment to read. I had plenty time during the other part of the day, but I didn't read. Instead I was doing other things. Things that could have waited until after I read.

Today I just finished Exodus. I am supposed to be in Numbers already. Ugh! Why did I do this?!

I guess because I didn't set a time. I don't have a designated time each day for reading God's Word. That made it harder for me to sit down and read.

So I have decided that I will read along with the 90 day plan schedule, but I will just take 94 days! :) I will read in the morning once I wake up. I have practicum so I will have to wake up early to begin with. So this makes me a little nervous saying that. But I can do it. I don't want to be selfish, I want to spend time reading my Creator's words.

Pray for me that I can make myself get up and read my Bible. I've heard once you do something for 21 days it becomes a habit. I want reading my Bible to be a habit. I want to know more. I want to long for and be hungry for the Word.
