Join Me?

I have been seriously undisciplined in Bible reading lately! It's not that I don't have a plan, I do. Our Church gave out a one year Bible reading plan that I am trying to follow. No, the problem lies in my laziness and desire for sleep/entertainment. Being in the Word is VITAL for my walk, for my relationship with my Lord, and yet, I neglect it all too often. So, the ladies from Girltalk (CJ Maheney's wife and daughters), are offering up a month long challenge to get up before your family in the morning and spend time with the Lord. Here is what they have to say about it:

To cap off our sitting series, we’re excited to announce a new feature here at girltalk. Next Monday, February 1, we will officially launch our two clubs: The 5 O’Clock Club and The FAM Club.

The 5 O’Clock Club is for those who want to rise early (it doesn’t have to be 5 O’clock, that’s just the name of the club) to meet with God.

The FAM Club (Fast A Meal) is for those who want to fast one meal a week to pray for a family member’s salvation.

I'm going to start tomorrow morning at 7 am. I am not a morning person at all, so for me this is hard to do! This also means that I have to start going to bed earlier. I am a night person, so this is hard for me to do. But, I know that it is more than worth it! I would love to know if any of you want to join me in this challenge (you can also go to Girltalk and sign up tomorrow if you want). Leave me a comment and we will keep each other accountable! Also, if anyone wants to keep me accountable even more, please feel free to text me at 7:00 am and tell me to get out of bed! I am serious! I would love that additional accountability/help!
I'm excited to see how God is going to work this month!

OK you're on! 7a.m. for me too! (oh, i hate mornings!) And I don't drink coffee so....hmmmm, hot chocolate will have to suffice! I have been doing the reading but not as consistently as I would like so I'm excited! thanks Amy!

I'm up at 5:30 every morning, so I'll do this as well. I may not be able to fast a meal because of my blood sugar levels but I will fast my coffee, I've done this before and I truly believe its not the food, its the attitude and the reasons. Please keep me accountable. I too am pulled into too many entertaining things and then I run out of day. God never seems to run out of day for me.

Ok girlie! I'll text you at 7am every morning....if you'd like. I am up at 6am to have my quiet time....I know what you mean....I too HAVE to have my QT or I just don't have a good day b/c my focus is all off, and then I'm not as patient as I should be with the kids. I'm doing the church "reading through the Bible in a year" too.....and LOVING it! I have never read through the entire Bible before....I know....that is a HORRIBLE thing to admit to, but it's true and I'm super excited to be reading with the church this year!!! :) I love you and I love your heart! You are such an example to me really are! I'll text u tomorrow morning at 7am??? Is that still ok??? :) Love you!!
