Treasury of Truth Mini-Challenge (May)

For the month of May I'll be joining Becky @ Operation Actually Read Bible for a Bible reading challenge.
If you would like to join us just comment on her blog post @
http://operationreadbible.blogspot.com/2013/04/treasure-of-truth-mini-challenge-may.html
At the end of the challenge (in early June) I'll write a post on my reflections on this challenge. 

The following is from Becky @ Operation Actually Read Bible.
"Do you see yourself the way God sees you, or, the way the world sees you? The Bible is rich in truth; it's holding treasures we need to know and rediscover. I'd like to invite you to join me in special readings for the month of May. The primary goal is to read Psalm 139 thirty times in the month of May. (Exact numbers don't matter, if you can only manage around twenty. I'd rather have you mediate on these twenty-four verses a dozen times than none at all.) Please let me know if you're interested in joining! I'll be posting something each week reminding you of the readings and sharing additional quotes and verses!

The particulars:


  • Just one translation is necessary to participate; additional translations might add something to the study, but are not needed. Any translation is acceptable.
  • You can participate on a week-to-week basis or a week-to-week commitment; if you just do one week out of five that would be fine."
