Bible Reading for January 1

[Just a quick note: Starting January 1st the Word for the Way blog will have a Bible Reading selection for each day from the King James Version of the Bible. If you complete each day’s reading you will have read the entire Bible through by the end of the year. Below is the reading for January 1. Enjoy!  –G–]

 

Genesis Chapter 1

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Continue reading “Bible Reading for January 1”

Progress Report

A lot has been accomplished in the last 3 days. Bible Reading material is loaded that will cover through the first week in June. This part of the work is tedious, but I’m sure it will be well worth the effort. Kenny G is keeping me relaxed while I work.

I apologize for the ads. It appears I have met the quota for pages that triggered the “add ads” option. Right now I don’t have to pay anything to use WordPress to publish Word for the Way. The ads will only be removed when I choose to start on one of their pay plan options.  I will do this in due time, just not today.

>>Two days until launch!!<<

Closing in on W4tW Launch Date

The launch date for the Word for the Way blog/podcast is December 30th. The closer it gets the more excited I get. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately entering in data for the King James version of the Bible.

The purpose of the blog is to give folks a daily dose of God’s Word, the Bible. One of the ways I intend to do this is to encourage everyone to read their Bible each day. The Bible reading program that will be presented will guide the individual to read the Bible completely through in the year. This can be accomplished if the reader will spend approximately 20 minutes each day reading the Bible. W4tW will have a daily blog with the correct amount of scripture pre-printed to assist in this goal. The first Bible reading blog will post on January 1st.

I have read the Bible through each year for several years now and each year it has proven to be a blessing to me. I can’t wait to get started again this year. I hope you will plan to join me.

“One podcast, coming right up!”

Take #15!! Naw! It’s not really that bad. I do need to give myself a break though, and admit that it’s not actually going to be perfect!

The podcast is coming along. I’ve got all the sound settings where I want them. Now I just have to get a take that I like. I’m looking for a 3–5 minute time frame for the podcast.

I’m pretty sure that I will be able to blog and podcast at least on a weekly basis. When I say blog, I’m speaking of the weekly article I will be writing to feature on the Sunday W4tW blogs. I’m not counting the short daily blogs that I will be doing… like this one.
