“The best takeaway I can still hardly wrap my head around is the paradigm shift that has taken place in my life these last 11 months. It’s a shift from reading the Bible to see what I can get from it, what nugget of wisdom I can take with me... to what was spoken in the primer episodes (before starting the plan) and throughout: Why Read? Why are we here each day with our eyes and ears and hearts engaged? To Behold the Living God and to Know His Character. That one phrase has been my starting place and prayer, day after say, again and again (along w/ the 5 prayers). Truly, for the first time in my life I feel like I know Yahweh/Jehovah, the LORD, God the Father. He is love. And I feel like again and again as I’m reading this story as His story, i keep coming back to the only response I can manage: “I didn’t know... I didn’t KNOW you were this loving. I didn’t KNOW this is who you were, who you are...” It’s like I’m finding out for the first time Who He Is, who He REALLY is (not what I think I’ve known about Him, what I’ve heard other people tell me, or what I’ve seen other people live out). And friends, as I’m growing to know Him, who He really is, it is changing absolutely. everything.
Thank you TBR team, thank you TLC. You have played a huge role in me being here, Day 232 (even with all the missed days, Praise God), still pressing in and finding truly the fullness of Joy. My life can’t be the same anymore because now I know. I know — Hallelujah, I know!! — the LORD our God. ♥️ Grateful to you and grateful beyond measure to Him.”
