My goal for the year was to read the Bible, the entire way through. I've tried several times and for whatever reason I have always struggled to complete it. But not this time. This time I will persevere! I've got God on my side, so there's no reason why I can't do this!!!
And I've gotten into a nice routine. Tuesdays after work I head to a coffee shop not far from work and I read for about two hours. I learned quickly that I focus better on what I'm reading if I take notes. I'm keeping them in a journal and I think it'll be cool to have that down the road to remember what passages really spoke to me at this time in my life and what I took away from the readings.
I do have a Bible Through the Year book that I had initially intended on using, but after looking at it, it wasn't really what I needed for this endeavor. So instead I've printing the classic reading plan from Bible Study Tools. It is exactly what I need.
And as of today I have completed 1/12 of the Bible. Ok, not a huge accomplishment, but I am well pleased with myself. And I'm also looking forward to my coffee date tomorrow after work.
