*When a friend and I began reading through The Daily Bible in 2002, it seemed as if God had custom-designed our daily readings specifically for the events which were unfolding in our lives that year. We found it amazing—at times, almost unbelievable—how often the scriptures contained just the message we needed to hear from God on any particular day. The Bible became a masterful guide, a powerful tool and a delightful treasure as we persistently delved into its truths together and encouraged each other from its pages. Through the powerful work of the Holy Spirit within us, we found the Word of God to be "living and active," "sharper than any double-edged sword," penetrating to the depths of our souls and revealing "the thoughts and attitudes of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12). That year, as God used the mutual study of His Word to lead us through some deeply-rooted personal struggles, I began writing the "Daily Bible Reflections" shared on this site. I continued writing for the next five years. Each year, our scripture readings, again, seemed to miraculously match our journeys through life. Eventually, I hope to resume this project and have a devotional for each day of the year, corresponding to the reading schedule in The Daily Bible.
