My friend, Duane Scott of “Scribing The Journey” shared a facebook status about a group he was going to be a part of, and I immediately wanted to be part of the group, too! The group is called “Read through the Bible in 2012” and I am giddy excited to be a part of it! It is a group of people, committing to read through the Bible in 2012. There are many suggestions of reading plans, and lots of encouragement already happening at this group!
I went to work trying to figure out a plan that would work best for me. I recently bought a Nook book reader, so I knew I would need to be able to read the Bible from it to be successful. I take it everywhere, and life provides many opportunities to pick it up and read–i.e. waiting in the car when picking up kids!
I was excited when I found the “One Year Chronological Bible” version. I love the idea of the Bible in chronological order. Those who have read this version commented on how it reads more like a story. One said that right after reading about David going to battle in one part of the Bible, you then get to read the Psalm he wrote of his thoughts and fears during that battle. Pretty cool.
When I think of the words, “Happy New Year,” I know that true happiness means knowing my Creator more. Resting in His plan for me. The grace and peace He brings, no matter what comes my way…that, my friends, is true happiness. What better way to find this than to read His Words?
Have you ever read through the Bible?
Is it something that you would ever want to do?
Is there a reading plan that you love?
