For years and years I read through the Bible every year. Sometimes I would get behind for a few days, feel guilty, and have a marathon reading session to get caught up!
Then while I was in seminary and working as COO of a missions organization I was studying and preparing lessons, but not reading for my own edification.
And that brings me to 2015.
One of my goals for 2015 was to read through the Bible once again. To re-establish that habit of being in God’s Word on a daily basis.
BUT, I decided I didn’t want to simply read through the Bible. I wanted to study as I went, and to make notes in the margins of things I found interesting. On my very first day I realized making notes in the margins wasn’t enough so I decided to keep a journal of the interesting things I noticed every day in my reading.
Reading the Bible through is wonderful.
Making notes in the margin helps me remember key points in the scripture.
Writing my study notes down in a journal brought out a richness in the scripture that I have never, ever realized before. Despite all my years of reading through the Bible, and despite all that concentrated study in seminary, the simple act of journaling what I learned from the scripture that day has been the best experience ever!
I would love to have you join me on this journey.
Join with me by reading, study, and journaling your way through the Bible this year. I launched a new website "Bible Study Daily" where I’ll post my thoughts every day.
I’d love it if you would join me and the community of other believers! I created a free guide that explains the exact 4-step method I use in my study every day, and it is my ministry gift to you.
Together, as members of the family of God we will read, study, and journal our way through the Bible this year. And I promise, studying God’s Word this way will bring a richness to your life that you have never experienced before!
