Happy New Year and welcome to this weeks reading. It has been a bit of an intresting start for me as I have been in New York for New Years Eve, then jumped on a plane at 6pm new years day and got to Sydney at 10am on Jan 3rd, that is a lot of flying :)

But I have still managed to read the daily readings. The tough part is to work out what to write about. I have put on a pressure on myself all of a sudden to now be an inspirational writer that gets revelations from the bible and shares it in a contemporary and impacting way. This is a lot of pressure and I am not sure if I am ready for it.

In fact I don’t think I am ready for this whole adventure. I should have told a lot more people about it before we started, I should have make the instructions more clear. In fact the link I put for the plan wasn’t complete and I am worried of the people that are doing it they have missed a few days and are going get disheartened and stop before they have started. Btw the new link is here

But it is funny how a lot of the time God doesn’t really care if you are ready but more if you are willing. The bible is full of those stories and we started with one of the classics on the first day with Matthew 1 with Mary and Joseph. They were not even married, totally not ready to have kids. Then when Mary became pregnant Joseph was not ready for the pressure, judgment and responsibility of having a child out of wedlock. He may not was ready to be married, they were only engaged. But both him and Mary were simply willing and have played a part in shaping history.

So this week don’t worry about if you are ready hear from God as you read his word each day, just be willing.

Have Fun

Dan.
