This Bible journey is becoming less and less of a slog the further into the trip I get. No longer am I homesick for the usual routine of doing whatever I want to do with my mornings and evenings. As I approach the end of the second month, I look forward to waking up to see what’s in the chapters for me to learn each day. Today was no exception.
Day 58 - Deuteronomy chapters 15-16 and Psalms 58
But, as I read through what felt like revisiting tourist spots I’ve been to before, nothing new jumped out at me. Perhaps my focus was on my task list for the day. Perhaps I was rushing through so that I could tackle some real-life issues. Whatever the reason, I’m feeling a little uninspired for tonight’s writing assignment.
I use night’s like this to do a little research that puts the Scriptures in context. So, I turned to some trusty study buddies. First, I checked my notes from my husband’s big old study Bible. And, I only found a few notes…
Then, I opened hubby's Bible to the beginning of Deuteronomy so that I could read what I neglected to jot down in my own Bible…

Eh...still uninspired. So now what? Hey...I just remembered the Archaeological Study Bible that I haven’t picked up in years! It’s so cool, but I never use it because it’s in a translation that I don’t particularly care for. But, it’s got some great study notes on just about every other page…

I'm so excited about remembering this beautiful Bible sitting high on my bookshelf! And, I look forward to incorporating some more background knowledge into my journey. Finding it makes me want to go back and read all the study notes from Genesis to Numbers, too.
