When I was poking around online a few months ago, I found a plan for reading the Bible in one year in chronological order, in the order the events happened. I thought this was interesting, and yesterday I started doing it. Genesis is still at the beginning, by the way.
When I read the part about the flood, I had the same thought I usually do when I read it. Why did God even create the world the way He did when He knew He was going to just wipe it all out and start over?
On an unrelated subject, I’ve been focusing a lot lately on my financial situation. I’ve actually been thinking about it since October. I really want to get to the point where I am debt-free, but it just seems impossible. At this point, I’m living for free, my car is paid for, so I’m not sure how to cut back much more. I came to the conclusion that I need to sell everything that I can because I can’t afford to keep all my stuff in storage.
I woke up this morning thinking about my furniture. I really like my furniture. I’ve just collected it over the years from craigslist and other things. I always found good deals on stuff. Everything is so comfortable, and I just hate the thought of getting rid of it.
That’s when God said to me, “I know it’s not what you want to do, but sometimes you just have to get rid of almost everything and start over.”
