even if you loved me never, you know i love you still

Reading through the Bible a chapter a day.

This seems to have ended up showing my journey as a Christian as much as it's shown my journey through the Bible. I've grown from someone who didn't trust God and spent a lot of time being annoyed with or doubting God to someone who feels like they have a firmer foundation and a better understanding of God and the Bible.

Nb: favourite chapters (not necessarily my favourite recaps):
- Psalms: full of hope and agonising prayers that anyone can relate to. So many beautiful verses.
- Isaiah: a collision of astonishing hope/grace/love and disturbing, violent, abusive depictions of God and God's plans.
- Zechariah: bizarre, beautiful, hopeful and full of Jesus.

(as yet unrecapped)
- Luke: perfect social-justice-y gospel
- John
- Ephesians
- Colossians
- 1 John
