With all of the rubbish you find on the world wide web, it is always nice to be able to pass on something that is helpful. I recently began using my laptop for my quiet time journal, and now Bible reading. I thought I would never give up my fancy journals and pens – but it is so much more practical to keep one place for everything. I can cut and paste verses and quotes into my to-do list (I think I got that idea from Carolyn Mahaney, but i’m not sure). Or if I’m e-mailing somebody, I can insert scripture more readily to encourage that individual. This year I am using D.A. Carson’s For the Love of God companion book in order to read through the Bible in a year. I am loving this! He uses the M’Cheyenne schedule of reading. I found the ESV online has the M’Cheyenne readings here. I put it in my favorites and go there each morning. I never thought I would be able to read my Bible on a computer screen, but I’ve adjusted, and love being able to cut and paste sections of scripture into my journal for the day. Just thought I’d pass it along, I’m sure many of you already know about it.
Also, I just subrscribed to bloglines. By subscribing to various blog feeds I am able to check my blogs much faster because bloglines tells me which ones have been updated. So now I’m not checking my favorite blog each day to see if they posted, bloglines does that for me. It’s hard to explain, just go there, and trust me it will save you time on your blog reading. I also find myself spending measured time on blogs rather than clicking aimlessly here and there. I know some of you already use this and if you can explain it better, please do so in my comment box.
