So I just started a fast. This time not around food but frameworks. Odd, but I’m talking about the story plots I carry around with me in my head. I thought I’d take some time to clean out some of the story lines. You know what I mean. Just ask what the story line for an action movie is, a romantic comedy, a rocky type film, a syfy teen drama, a police drama, a detective drama….they are all there in your head.
So I thought I’d give it a year and clear them out. To replace them I decided to read through the story part of the Old Testament, Judges through 2 Chronicles over and over again for the year. About 3 to 5 chapters a day should do. No pressure, no particular schedule.
It has been almost a month so far and I’m learning a bunch. One thing I certainly would suggest you DO NOT do is read 2 Kings before going to bed. Nope, not a good idea. I was trying to relax when I read about this king who had 70 royal heirs (young men to kids) decapitated and stacked the heads in front of the city gate. Then he filled a pagan temple full of pagan priests making them think he was joining them in celebration and then he cut all of them down with the sword. Anyone who got out also got cut down. Yep, hard to get to sleep after reading all that.
I’ll give you periodic updates on my journey to a different mind..
