Vessels of Clay is a daily journal I am keeping as I read through various portions of the Scriptures each year. It is part of a spiritual journey that our church has been taking together called The Quest. Over the last five years, we have challenged our people to read through the Old and New Testaments, taking the books in chronological order. This was a three-year endeavor. Then we read through the Proverbs and the Psalms of David. This was followed by a harmony of the Gospels. And now we are reading the letters of Paul in the chronological order in which they were written.
This blog began as a result of my commitment to not only do the daily readings, but to share any insights God might share with me along the way. It has been a life-changing experience. The daily discipline of getting into God’s Word and allowing it to speak to me has been at times difficult, but always rewarding. I have learned so much about my God. I have discovered truths that, while always there, had been hidden from me because I had not taken the time to search for them. I want to invite you to join me on this fantastic ongoing journey through the Bible – God’s revelation of Himself to mankind. It’s not too late to start and you’re going to love the scenery along the way. As part of this journey of spiritual discovery, I ask you to journal any thoughts or insights you glean as you read each day. If you want to join us, check on the link below where you can access the online reading schedule. Then as you read, simply use this simple acronym to assist you along the way.
Scripture – What verse or verses speak to you as you read?
Observation – What do you see that you’ve never seen before?
Application – How are you going to apply it to your life today?
Prayer – Turn what you have learned into a prayer to the Father.

It’s pretty simple, so I hope you’ll join the journey with me. If you just want to check in periodically and see what God is teaching me, you’re always welcome. But I would love to have you join the conversation.
