Bible in One Year: 2018 is a wrap

Sunday, November 25, 2018

I am so glad to report that I have finished reading the Bible in One year. I started a bit early and finished early.

I also made sure I stayed on track by doing the following:

• When I got late, I made sure I read until I got caught up with the reading
• I both read and listened to the Bible (not at the same time).
• I used a different plan which included videos. I did not watch all the videos. My goal was to read the Bible and the videos took more time than I had. My goal was to complete the reading.
• I mostly used the app the remind me where I was with the reading. I didn't like their format. Most of the time, I used my Bible and I opened the app to see how far I needed to read.

My takeaways in 2018 were:

• Reading the Bible in one year is a habit I enjoy. I will read the entire Bible again in 2019.
• I learned a lot and I was able to share what I learned with my family.
• The more I read the Bible, the more I need to study it. Studying and reading the Bible are two different things. I'm determined to take my time and study what I read. I'm not studying to be a scholar but I want the word of God to make a difference in my own life.

It takes between 10-15 minutes to complete a Bible in one year plan. If you don't feel like you have time, you can decrease your social media browsing by 15 minutes :)

I hope you join me and read the bible in one year! No need to wait until January, you can start now!
