Starting Over Again

Yesterday, I picked out a Bible to read through for 2013 (NIV 1984 in the One Year Bible format) and a devotional to dip into (Heart of the Matter by CCEF). I got out new bookmarks, stuck them into pages 1 & 2 of both books, and dug into the reading.

There is a certain kind of joy in starting over again in Genesis, Matthew, Psalms, and Proverbs.  It's not "O, brother, do I have to do this again?"  It's more like "O, Lord, what have you got to show me this year?"

By the way, my review of Heart of the Matter has been reposted today at the Biblical Counseling Coalition.
