In December 2009, I wrote out my goals for 2010. One of them was to read through the entire Bible…and I did it…twice! I joined up with Amy from Mom’s Toolbox in January of last year to read through the Bible in 90 Days. I was so excited and I jumped in with both feet and somewhere along the way, I completely got derailed. To make a long story short, it took me a little less than 6 months to read through the Bible.
I knew that Amy was leading another Bible in 90 Days group in July, so I signed on and I am thrilled to be able to say that I read the entire Bible in 90 days (and I even have the t-shirt).
I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it is to read the Bible in such a short amount of time. I learned things I never knew. I made connections I’d never made before. I got a clearer picture of God’s redemptive plan! It was such a sweet time for me!
I’m not going to delude you into thinking this will be easy. It will require discipline and time on your part, but it is so rewarding! Plan to set aside 1 hour a day to read. Be intentional with your plan. Determine when you’re going to read. Maybe you’ll need to get up an hour early every morning. Maybe you’ll need to bring your lunch to work every day and eat at your desk while you read. Whatever it is that you plan to do, I want to encourage you to make a plan and follow through!
There is a great community that will be reading the Bible in 90 Days! It’s a great place for support, encouragement, and to have your questions answered! Sign up here to read the Bible in 90 Days and be a part of the awesome community of readers.
I also encourage you to read from The Bible in 90 Days: Cover to Cover in 12 Pages a Day (New International Version). There is nothing magical about this Bible (it’s a regular NIV Bible), but it’s divided up so that you can read 12 pages every day and finish in 90 days. I used The Bible in 90 Days (Kindle edition) to read through the Bible. You don’t have to have a Kindle to be able to read The Bible in 90 Days (Kindle edition). Check out these free downloads to read Kindle books on the devices you already have.
If you don’t want to use one of the Bible in 90 Days Bibles, you can download this reading schedule.
