A year in the Bible without quitting?

  

Who else has tried reading through the Bible only to get bored 😱 or overwhelmed πŸ€”by the time you reached Leviticus? βœ‹πŸ»βœ‹πŸ»βœ‹πŸ»βœ‹πŸ»

Thankfully a Bible study last year with group accountability got me to finally make it through Numbers and Deuteronomy πŸ‘πŸ»! After that study (over Moses) ended, I was intrigued enough to read through Joshua, Judges, Ruth and 1 Samuel on my own, at my own pace, but I hungered for a way to read the whole Bible in a way that would not cause burnout and would make me do it in a year or less. Being the genius πŸ‘€ that I am, it was still a few weeks before the light bulb went off πŸ’‘and I looked for a Bible reading plan in the Bible App πŸ“±. I started back in Genesis in November–I’m a little OCD and needed to read it from the beginning in order. Fast forward to tonight (Day 136), πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£and I’m in 2 Kings and John.

So what’s different this time? Why am I actually sticking to it FINALLY?
✝ I regularly ask God to make me hunger for Him.

✝ I picked out a Bible to be the official Bible for this read through and I Mark it up like a text book. It also makes it fun to be able to see my progress.

✝ I have friends who keep me accountable simply because we always talk about what God is revealing in our lives.

✝ I feel different and have noticed a change in my view of the world the more I spend time in the Word.

✝ My plan lets you start from the beginning any day of the year (so I could start then, not wait until January 1st).

✝ Because God decided this was the year I would do it. That’s the real reason. The others are just ideas to motivate me to stay excited.

Have you read the whole Bible recently? If not, why not jump in now? There are many options, some take a few years, some read the whole Bible, others take you through the highlights.  There are so many options! I’m sure there’s one for everyone. Click here to open my plan in the Bible app.
