A Sucker for the high Score

YouVersion_logoI have a confession. I am a sucker for a high score.  I may seem like I am not much for keeping score, counting wins and losses and wanting to have good stats but I am.  I can get sucked into the dumbest things just because there is a way to track, or monitor progress and accomplishment.  This might be because I feel like it brings some order to a chaotic life and it may be that I am competitive to the core.  This is one of the reasons I have loved having a Garmin watch tell me how far I have run and biked in the past couple of years.  It keeps me motivated, on track and I can set goals.

So, with the dawn of a new year I am committing again to read through the Bible in a Year.  a site I have written about before YouVersion.com has found a way to track and “keep score’ of how well I am doing.  The site tracks your progress in your reading plans, has space to make notes and allows you to call an audible and catch up if you fall behind pace.  Though I am supposed to be on day 3 right now, I have read ahead to build a buffer and I am on day 6. 

If you would like to join me on the journey I would love it.  I am doing the reading plan called “The One Year Bible”.  Click here to check it out.  There are a ton of other reading plans too.  I did one throughout Christmas that went through the Christmas story scriptures. 

Let me know how you are getting into the word this new year.  I would love to share in the journey.
