When I had babies, I stuck to Matthias Media's Daily Reading Bible Notes, but now I figure I've got the energy for more.
I'm following in a grand family tradition. Here are 2 things I remember about my darling Nana:
- she loved us tickling the soles of her feet
- she read the Bible through every year.
This time, I'm using a chronological Bible reading plan. I can't tell you how it's going yet, as I'm only 5 readings in. But I'm excited, especially about seeing how the Psalms fit into the Bible story.
Already I've gone a little off course. Instead of meandering off Genesis and into Job, I ignored the reading chart and jumped straight into the story of Abraham ... oops! So I took a U-turn and I'm now knee-deep in Job, which I loved reading last year.
Next time, I want to try this thematic Bible reading plan. And then I want to write a review of the plans I've used. All in good time.
Can I encourage you to try one of these plans or this one? You can start any time of the year - I did! - and go as slowly as you like - I did!
Meredith, who reminds me of my Nana (the Bible bit, not the feet bit), gives some great hints and tips to help you here.
Why wait till after Christmas when you can start now?
What about you? How are you reading the Bible at the moment? Tell us here.
