Heart and Home ~ Bible in a Year ~ 1/1/13


Click above to join in & share how you’re creating home or cultivating faith this week.

I've mentioned a few time in the past weeks that I will be starting a program with other members of my Church to read the Bible through in a year.  You can see the schedule for the first three months HERE.


"2 Timothy 3:  15-17. - 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."

I truly believe in the importance of reading God's Word.   By reading, we learn.  By learning we will be able to use our knowledge in whatever circumstance we find ourselves.

I've done a few programs in the past to read the Bible through in a year and I was surprised at what I learned.  I was raised in the Church but there was always something new that would strike me each time I read.

I look forward to reading along with my family and friends and having the accountability to stay with the program.

I have a desk set aside to keep my Bible open to where I'm reading so that all I'll have to do is sit down and read.  I find that this is extremely helpful to keep me on track.  I have my schedule there and a new notebook  to write any thoughts or questions down as I read.

So, now it is just a matter of making my Bible study a priority each and every day.

"For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope."  Romans 15:4

Do you have a daily Bible study?  If not, I'd love to have you join me in on this journey.
