In 2012 I'd like to read through the entire Bible in one year.
I've never read the entire Bible, so I am excited of this challenge. And I am quite aware that as it will be fast paced. But, I still want to do this.
I had actually grabbed a copy of The One Year Bible, the entire New Living Translation arranged in 365 daily readings for $2 at my newest favorite book store, and was quite excited by that find....
and then, last Sunday (Christmas) as I was sitting at church, reading over our bulletin, this caught my eye:
2012 is almost here! We are excited for new opportunities for spiritual growth in the coming year. We're asking God to make 2012 a year of Mobilizing our Church for Growing and Going. So get Growing and take the Read through the Bible in a Year challenge. The schedule will be printed each week in our Worship Guide.
And just like that, not only was I planning to read through the entire Bible in a year, but many members of my church as as well. Which means I will have multiple accountability partners.
THIS IS GREAT!
Can we say God's perfect timing?
I am so excited to start this challenge on January 1st, and while I realize it will be a tough one, finding the time each day in our already busy lives, I hope that maybe one or two (or more) of my followers will join me in this challenge. I had thought about doing a weekly link up but wasn't sure how many would actually want to participate. Then I thought maybe instead of doing a Bible in a year link up, I'd just do a general link up of what God is teaching you this week, or what you've read in the Bible this week.... What do you all think? Opinions please. :)
