Read the Bible in 90 Days, Week 12

Well, here we are at week 12 and I am one day behind.  I have no doubt that I will catch up tomorrow but I do seem to be running behind lately.  I have to say that reading the gospels one right after the other is amazing (I know I use that world a lot).  It is so neat to read the stories of Jesus life and ministry again and again from a different perspective yet still the same story.  The gospels contain so many of my favorite verses. 

John 16:33 - These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
How can you not love that verse?  I memorized in high school and it has been a verse that I come back to again and again.   And another verse I love John 14:27.

John 14:27 - "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

There are many, many more.  I do love reading the New Testament and I love the encouragement I get from the life of Jesus.

Thank you again to Mom's Toolbox for hosting this and encouraging all of us each week.
