Okay, so I started reading the Bible after seeing the Passion in March 2004, right? I don’t know why or what I was thinking but I promised our Lord that I would EVERY SINGLE DAY read in Scriptures until the day I die and if I forget, strike me dead!
Now, I would read the OT in the morning and the NT during the evenings. I’ve already finished the NT three times and still halfway done with the OT. However, a month and a half ago in September this year, I was struggling with some personal issues and reading comprehension problems with the text books in college and was so upset and weary that I STOPPED reading Scripture! Heck, I wasn’t even understanding what I was reading in the OT!
It wasn’t until about two weeks ago when the promise I made burst into my mind and thought, oh dang, look what a fool I made myself! Sorry Lord is all I could pray.
I still can’t find myself picking up Scripture to this day and I’m cursing at myself and almost hate myself for what I did.
If I remember correctly, isn’t there somewhere in Scripture where it says that don’t make promises to God unless you will do it?
