I’m not quite up to the daily reading habit yet and I’m behind in the reading schedule I’m using, but I’m definitely reading more often. So thankful. My grandfather died last Saturday and I’ve really found extra comfort and inspiration here, along with a bk titled Green Leaf in Drought Time. Thanking God for His love, His word, and His presence, through this and some other things I’m struggling with right now.
So… I feel I’ve accomplished this goal… although one can always add more to the ‘more’ we’ve already reached. :)
It is enough because ‘It is finished.’
caught up on the year plan and I’ve kept going. thankful! and awake!
1 week reading every day! such a blessing/encouragement/celebration!
loving the new reading schedule and so thankful to God for drawing me into His word. Praying for the blessing of another week like this
I’m doing better on this, at least for the last few days. Going to wait a bit longer before I mark this goal as accomplished though. Seems I go through peaks and valleys with Bible reading and I really want this to be something automatic, even when I’m feeling like crap…er…spiritually. :)
really thankful for the blessings of the Word, this week especially.
I should thank my kittens for constantly knocking my stuff around because in the midst of picking it up I found a couple things I had printed out at least a couple years ago, trying to achieve just this goal. One was the Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan which can be found on their page of Bible Reading Plans for anyone who’s interested. The other is a 2 page general guide called “How to Study the Bible” (not sure actually where I got it b/c the url isn’t printed on it, nor is the name of the page) which gives you general process. It’s not really new information but I found it helpful anyway.
With the Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan you read the whole Bible in one year, starting from 4 places and read a bit in each every day in order “to better grasp the unity of the scriptures.” This was something I was trying to set up on my own, but I think their schedule will work a lot better. :)
Edit 01/25/2010: Found the 2nd guide I rediscovered; How to Study the Bible is a guide found on the klove radio website
