I realized this morning that I’ve been remiss in sharing my new Bible reading plan with y’all. The plan I usually use for my daily Bible reading is the One Year Bible Online and I highly recommend it. I love that your daily reading includes parts of the Old and New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs.
When I first heard about reading through the entire Bible in 90 days I was intrigued, but also a bit of a naysayer. I couldn’t see any way that reading the Bible that fast could be a good thing, so I went on my merry way.
But a funny thing started happening – I thought of this plan a lot and finally decided that if God is putting it on my heart this much then I should do it.
I began my reading on July 5 as the schedule dictated and this was even while we were at the lake on vacation. Genesis and Exodus provided great reading as I revisited some favorite stories.
And along about the two and a half week mark it hit me – this is really an awesome tool! It was shared with us that this is NOT a study and we shouldn’t take the time to look up verses and do further study – just READ. What is happening for me is that I’m seeing some connections between stories and bloodlines that I never would have noticed by reading it more slowly.
I’m certain that when I finish this time I’ll probably do this again annually. And in between I’ll do my regular Bible in a year reading and any Bible studies that come my way. I love how we have so many different ways to read the Bible available to us.
