Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought

by Mary May Larmoyeux

Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Has your grandchild?

One of mine is to read through the entire Bible this year. Our pastor provided several plans for doing this; one is to read through the Bible in chronological order. That's what I'll follow.

If you are looking for different Bible reading plans, the English Standard Bible (ESV) has ten on its website that can be accessed in different formats (print, email, RSS, mobile, etc.). One is reading through the Bible in chronological order. You may want to check this out: http://www.esv.org/resources/reading-plans-devotions/

And, you might decide to encourage an older grandchild to read through the Bible with you. Wouldn't it be great to discuss what you learn together!  

Hope that 2014 brings many wonderful things to you and your family. No matter what happens, may we all remember these words from the Bible:

This is what God says, the God who builds a road right through the ocean, who carves a path through pounding waves, The God who summons horses and chariots and armies— they lie down and then can’t get up; they’re snuffed out like so many candles: “Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands." (Isaiah 43:16-19, The Message)

Happy New Year!
