It really isn’t difficult to read through the bible. I have done it many times since childhood; I have read many different versions. Just do it, and stop thinking about it.
I suggest picking an easy version to read first, such as The Message, The Good News, of The Living Bible. If you’ve been struggling for a long time, why not try a different version from what you’ve been reading? It will help bring some freshness to you. Start from a book you’ve never read before.
There are a number of different ways to read the bible. You can go from cover to cover, you can read it in chronological order, you can read it by book types (Pentateuch, History Books, Major prophets, Minor prophets, Gospels etc), or just randomly pick books to read at a time.
