There is so much to feast on in the pages I have poured over, but just as many times I have stubbed my toe, tripped and fallen over passages I don't grasp, wrestled with those that could mean one thing or another, and squirmed in my seat over the ones I do fully understand, just not completely, authentically walk out consistently. I am almost done! I am in 1 John, headed towards finishing the challenge today!
