The Surf Report – Bible Reading, Social Media, and Alba: A Wildlife Adventure

Welcome to the Surf Report for January 14, 2021

.: God :

My Bible reading plan for 2020 has carried over into 2021. I’ve got to finish up:

  • Jeremiah
  • Psalms
  • James
  • 2 Kings
  • 2 Chronicles
  • Lamentations
  • Obadiah
  • Ezekiel
  • John
  • Daniel
  • Ezra
  • Haggai
  • Zechariah
  • 1 John
  • 2 John
  • 3 John
  • Esther
  • Revelation
  • Malachi
  • Job

.: Life :

I’ve been sitting here scrolling through Facebook. Mindlessly, I scroll past former friends and acquaintances. Some have tried to monetize their lives, perhaps even create some sort of lifestyle brand; Some have tried their hands at homebuilding, while documenting how many kids they have on the side. Through the countless pictures, videos, and inspirational images of scripture, I have to wonder, does anybody care?

We put so much time into social media but what does it really give us?

More importantly, could I start a lifestyle brand? 🙂

.: Gaming :

I spent part of my Christmas break playing Ustwo Games Alba: A Wildlife Adventure on my iPad. I love it! I loved:

  • Skipping around the island
  • Taking pictures
  • Enjoying the wildlife
  • Being able to explore and chill at my own pace

So, what about you?

How did your Bible reading plan go for 2020? Did it bleed over, like mine, into 2021?

Play anything good lately? Read a fantastic book?

  1. Bryan, I definitely identify with your thoughts on social media. Also, as far as Bible reading, I did the 5-day plan and was able to finish it on Jan 1st (I think), but I’m easing back this year. I’m reading the Tabletalk magainze which is slowly walking through 1 Corinthians, and I’m also going to be alternating reading an OT book and then an NT book. The 5 day plan was good, but sometimes I just felt like I was just checking a box everyday. Finally, a good book to check out is Dane Ortlund’s Gentle and Lowly. Reading it right now. Good for the soul.

  2. 2020-Not so hot. Covid hit and I stopped playing Pickleball. My fault, I didn’t have to quit. 2021- back to daily Bible reading starting in Genesis. The stories always amaze me. Going to start playing Pickleball. Would love to come out for a visit. Sooner is better than later. What is the goal of the game you mentioned?
