Have you ever tried to read the Bible through in a year? If so, have you ever had difficulties in doing so? Well for the longest time, I was never successful in reading my Bible all the way through in a year. I would always get stuck in Leviticus, the Kings, the Chronicles, or Judges. Sometimes I would make it through those, but it would take me forever to do so, and I became discouraged. Finally I realized that it would be better for me to NOT read the Bible in order from Genesis to Revelation. That sounds bad, I know. I felt guilty at first, but then I realized that I was reading my Bible and was getting more read by not reading the Bible in order. So I learned that as long as you are reading the Bible, it doesn't really matter how you are doing so. Some people are able to read the Bible in order, and there it is great. However, if you are like I was, then I want to suggest that you find a way that works best for you. Here is what I found that works for me: I read a Psalm and a Proverb everyday, then I read a chapter in the New Testament everyday, and then I split the Old Testament up into two sections: the first section is Genesis-Job and the second section is Ecclesiastes-Malachi - I will then read at least one chapter from each of those sections everyday as well. So I read at least five chapters everyday. In order to get the entire Bible read in a year, I will read several chapters from one of the Old Testament sections at least once a week.(usually more) I have found that dividing the Bible up this way helps me to read the Bible through in a year. Now that may not work for you, but it definitely works for me. If you have a Bible reading plan that works for you, then that is wonderful and I encourage you to continue to use it. If you haven't found a plan that works for you, then try me or keep looking until you find one that does work for you. Please do not give up. Keep trying and God will show you a plan that will work for you. Next week I will share with you how I am studying my Bible this year. In the meantime, I would love to know what sort of Bible reading plan you follow. Have A Wonderful Day!!!
