Read HIS Word Through...



How has your daily Bible reading been going? Mine, well let's just say it has been an up and down process. And I am going to be open and honest here on how it has been.

I go three days reading twice a day, then two reading maybe a verse. I have been completely inconsistent, and for that I'm ashamed...

I am still using the schedule I started out with at the beginning of the year. It's been a pretty intense schedule of changing book themes every day. This past week I decided to alter it and go through a book at a time. I just felt that schedule was not allowing me to really focus on what was being said for a long enough period of time.

So, here is where I am at currently...

I hope to finish up 2 Samuel today, by reading chapters 20-24. Tomorrow I would like to work on finishing Exodus by starting with chapter 25. After Exodus I will be going through Luke, then Galatians.

I have also made another decision concerning my Bible reading. I'm not going to push to finish in a year. Although that would be pretty awesome, I would rather take my time (not too much though), and focus on what the LORD is speaking through scriptures, and not be in a rush to get done reading it. We'll see though... :)

Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I think that was a wise decision. While it's an excellent idea to read the whole Bible through, it's necessary to question your motives while doing so. I was on a year-long plan but found myself only reading to check it off and feel good about myself -- *not* good! Still trying to figure out what's best in my life...Quality not quantity for sure!

  2. Keep going, Angel, you're doing well! I've been doing the same thing as you, just trying to take my time through each book, even spending several days on one chapter when I need to in order to understand and absorb it. The most important thing about reading the Bible is that we're listening to what the Lord is saying through it, meeting with Him and enjoying His words to us; not just checking off chapters and verses. I figure that no one is giving me an award for how quickly I read through the Old Testament. :-)

    I'm glad you posted about your progress, because you've reminded me to pray for you - I'll make sure and do that during devotions tonight!!

    Have a wonderful evening, my friend!

    Love,
    Vicki
